The Halo subreddit was taken down temporarily to address a number of issues that arose after the game’s release. The temporary closure came as developers outlined and addressed many updates coming to players, including new maps, modes, weapons and more.
The “halo infinite news” is a game that has been released by Microsoft. The game, which is the first in the Halo franchise to not be developed by Bungie, has received mixed reviews from players and critics alike. In response to this, the developers have outlined and addressed updates on the games subreddit.
The state of Halo Infinite’s multiplayer open beta has apparently enraged enough players that the entire Halo subreddit has been shut down until Monday as a result of “toxicity on the sub from both sides [that has] made it impossible for people to have civil discussions,” with threats of death and doxxing.
The root of the problem is a shortage of game modes, particularly the massively popular Slayer deathmatch mode, as well as severe amounts of grind for cosmetics and challenging tasks that are proving tough to achieve. The outrage has reached the point that 343 Industries community director Brian “Ske7ch” Jarrard has written a long article in which he both explains and defends the dev studio’s actions.
“We’ve had folks working their tails off for years to try to provide the greatest Halo game possible under really difficult conditions. […] It’s simply that it’s not as simple as ‘pressing a button.’ And, given the game’s size and complexity, any modification may have a significant negative effect without comprehensive testing. The team is already working on resolving these feedback concerns and determining “what CAN we do now.”
Community manager John Junyszek also discussed future content plans, stating that Fiesta, Tactical Slayer (SWAT), and Free-For-All playlists would be released before the end of the year, with a Social Slayer playlist following after the holidays. Junyszek also discussed XP earnings, stating that first session XP earnings are slower than the developers would like and explaining some boosted XP payments that went live last week.
Other upgrade ideas mentioned in the Halo subreddit include anti-cheat measures, desync issues, and stability improvements, among other things. On Wednesday, December 8th, Halo Infinite will be released for the first time.
