The news was shared via the August 20th development update. According to the update:
- Campaign co-op and Forge will release as free updates in 2022.
- Co-op is targeted for 3 months post-launch.
- Forge is targeted for 6 months post-launch.
- The team is fully committed to still releasing in 2021 and the release date will be shared soon.
The Creative Head of Halo Infinite, Joseph Staten, provided the following statement:
“Unfortunately, as we focused the team for shutdown and really focused on a quality experience for launch, we made the really tough decision to delay shipping campaign co-op for launch,” stated Halo Infinite creative head, Joseph Staten. “And we also made the tough call to delay shipping Forge past launch as well…he continued: Our number one priority is making sure whatever we ship, whenever we ship it, it meets the right quality bar. Across all platforms, Xbox devices, PC, and all of its different configurations. And when we looked at these two experiences, campaign co-op and Forge, we made the determination they’re just not ready.”
