The Halo franchise has typically allowed players to revisit its games’ numerous single-player levels without starting from the beginning after clearing their respective campaign modes, but for reasons that seemingly have to do with open-world design, 343 Industries is breaking that tradition with the upcoming release of its latest installment, Halo Infinite.
Luckily, 343 Industries has already heard the complaints of long-time Halo players loud and clear. Associate creative director Paul Crocker confirmed to The Verge in a recent interview that an update was on the way, although it remains unclear when that might be arriving.
“We haven’t announced a date but that is being worked on,” Crocker said.
“We want to have replay that works well, and when you have a more open game, it gets a lot trickier,” he added. “So we made a decision to improve the quality of the single-player campaign to ensure that, as a foundation, that it’s as strong as it possibly could be so that we could then add the other features back in.”
Halo Infinite’s highly anticipated campaign mode will be released tomorrow on December 8. According to a map shared by 343’s ske7ch (Brian Jarrard), it will unlocked for North Americans on 10:00 AM PST/1:00 PM EST.
