Halo Infinite's Lost Local Co-Op Campaign Was Nearly Complete
343 Industries always planned to roll out a "Halo Infinite" co-op campaign at some point; however, the traditional couch/local co-op campaign was canceled in September 2022, despite users discovering a mostly finished version of it through a glitch. Now, 343 Industries has come out to explain why it was never finished.
In an interview, "Halo Infinite" live service head Sean Baron revealed it was canceled because of time constraints: “What people were able to glitch into is probably 80% [complete]. But, the amount of work for us to get from an 80% quality to a 100% quality is significant. And the amount of effort that would take right now is not something that we can commit to."
Baron also said that the number of platforms "Halo Infinite" is available on factored into the decision. "There are things where, even if we have just a few crashes — I'm not sure what platform those players were playing on, because we would have to support all platforms — that's not maybe even something we can even get through our certification passes."
