Halo Infinite Big Team Battle Fix Is Coming Soon, Dev Shares An Update
343 Industries has shared an update on Halo Infinite issues confirming that they are working on a fix for the Big Team Battle mode.
Big Team Battle mode hasn’t been working properly for a lot of players since the launch of the game back in December. 343 Industries has acknowledged the issues faced by the players and shared a new update regarding a potential fix.
We want to first and foremost provide a situation update on the state of BTB in Halo Infinite. As you know, we’ve been dealing with some frustrating issues with BTB nearly since launch and despite a few attempts at solving and mitigating before the holiday break, we were not able to get this fixed. While BTB has remained playable, there are matchmaking issues that increase with more players and larger fireteams have a low chance of successfully joining into a game together.
A strike force continued to work on this over the break and we’re optimistic to say we believe we have a fix in hand for the core issue. This went into QA last week and so far it’s looking positive – we are not seeing this issue occur internally using this build.
Next steps are to continue testing and then move into the certification process as we prepare to release a hot fix / patch for this issue. It’s a little too soon to give an ETA yet but please know our goal is to release this as soon as we can while ensuring it doesn’t have any other unintended impact to the retail product. It won’t be this week, but we hope it’s not too much further out and we’ll share an update as soon as we have line of sight on a release date (once we clear ‘cert’ we are then ready to ship).
They weren’t able to provide an ETA for the fix, but rest assured, it is coming soon.
Obviously, this is not the only issue that they have tackled in their update. They also talked about cheats ruining online multiplayer and other issues that have been reported so far, but they are going to work on these gradually along with a fix for the Big Team Battle mode in Halo Infinite.
Halo Infinite is available now for the Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.
