As Halo Infinite gets closer and closer, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will begin to slow down its major content updates starting in 2022.
There was a lot to be said about the Halo franchise this year between everything that happens with Halo Infinite leading up to its release and frequent content updates from Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Unfortunately for fans of the latter, it looks like updates to the game will be much smaller starting in 2022.
According to a blog post on Halo Waypoint, Halo: The Master Chief CollectionSeason 8 will be the last major content update for the game. Blog post reassures fans that the game will continue to receive support after Infinite halo, but that 343 Industries will significantly reduce update sizes and move away from larger seasonal changes.
The post clarifies by saying that very few of the team working on The Master Chief collection also works on Infinite halo, but that it doesn’t make sense for the studio to fully support two almost identical multiplayer games. 343 repeatedly reiterates that the support is not going to stop completely, but it will be different after launching The CMC‘s Season 8. The post highlights modding as potentially the future of new content coming to the game as it may be more community-driven and 343 may divert its efforts elsewhere.
Modding for The Master Chief collection was a relatively new addition, but 343 Industries is keen to say that it will continue to provide more modding kits and support the community. Currently, the team plans to authorize Halo 2 and Halo 3 mods to go, but there is no date fans can expect to receive the kits. From the post it appears that all 343 CM Efforts are being put into Season 8 and the other updates and features mentioned in the article will follow its launch.
There is a lot of great content to come The Master Chief collection So for Season 8, this looks like a good send-off for the game’s seasonal content. While many fans will likely be disappointed with the news that the focus is more on Infinite haloonce launched, the game’s seasonal content should be relatively similar, as the blog post makes it seem like a lot of the current team is working on CMmultiplayer will also work on Infinite after launch.
