343 Industries has cancelled the Halo Infinite split-screen co-op and also delayed season three.

Cancelling the split-screen co-op will come as a major blow to fans of the Halo series. After all, couch split-screen co-op has been a thing since the beginning.

In a development update by 343, the team said: “In order to improve and accelerate ongoing live service development, and to better address player feedback and quality of life updates, we have reallocated studio resources and are no longer working on local campaign split-screen co-op.

Furthermore, season three of the Halo Infinite free-to-play multiplayer was supposed to be released this November. However, it has now been pushed back to March 2023.

So, to fill the gap of the postponed season three, 343 will release the “Winter Update” in November. The November update will bring Forge beta, online co-op as well as a 30-tier Battle Pass, a new mode and a map.

When season three finally arrives, we get new Arena and Bit Team Battle maps, new modes, weapons and a new Battle Pass.
