Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries has confirmed there will be no further seasons after season 5. This marks a significant shift in the game’s update strategy.
After season 5 goes live for the sci-fi shooter on 30th January, seasons will be retired and replaced by “operation” events instead. These operations will run for just four to six weeks at a time.
The accompanying battle passes for these operations will sport just 20 tiers. This is a significant change from the free-to-play shooter’s typically weighty, long-running seasons.
The shift to shorter operations could be a sign that 343i is now scaling back on the 2021 game, focusing on smaller, more frequent updates rather than large seasonal changes.
While 343i confirmed it would “continue to deliver” Halo Infinite updates for now, “additional teams” have now switched to “the future” and are “working on brand new projects.” This suggests exciting new developments in the pipeline.
As for Halo Infinite’s final fifth season, players can expect new Covenant items in Forge, a new arena map, a new operation, a free Mark IV Spartan core, and the power to add shoulder pieces to any armour.
