Halo Infinite fans hoping for a continuation of the campaign mode are in for some bad news; apparently, a Halo Infinite campaign DLC isn’t in the works, and according to Window Central’s Jez Corden, a continuation of the campaign mode “never existed beyond conversations.” Corden also added that 343’s main focus has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, on the live service.
“From what I’ve heard via multiple sources, Halo Infinite’s ‘campaign DLC,'” Corden said on his Twitter. “[It] never existed beyond conversations. Focus has been entirely on live service.”
Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier reiterated Corden’s statements on a ResetEra thread, stating that 343 is primarily “focused on multiplayer.” Schreier also thinks that a Halo Infinite campaign DLC was only very minimally, or perhaps never in 343’s plans at all.
“I ran these bullet points by a few people,” Schreier said in the thread. “While it’s true that 343 is focused on multiplayer, the stuff about campaign DLC being scrapped is false (I don’t think there was much of that planned in the first place), and a lot of this is either wrong or just speculation.”
Personally, we find it disappointing that a Halo Infinite campaign DLC isn’t in the works as the campaign was one of the most enjoyable aspects of the game for us when it was released. While Halo Infinite‘s multiplayer has been fun as well, the inclusion of the cumbersome Battle Pass and contrived cosmetic microtransactions are undeniably dissuading, especially when Halo: The Master Chief Collection offers so much customization without forced monetization in effect by comparison.
