Halo Infinite Is Getting New Modes and Playlists But Fans Aren’t Happy

It seems that Halo Infinite fans are less than happy with 343 Industries’ recent statement on playlists and game modes.

Halo Infinite’s Free-to-Play Multiplayer has been out for a few weeks now, and overall it’s been a fantastic experience. Halo is the best it has felt in years, with both new and old fans enjoying the franchise.

However, there are certainly a few issues with the game in its current state. First of all, Halo players can’t choose what game mode to play just yet.

And so far, the Halo Infinite Microtransactions are leading to store boycotts, as players show their distaste regarding the cosmetic pricing.

Finally, Halo Infinite’s SBMM is also incredibly strict, and it’s hurting those who enjoy the game most.

Now, Halo fans are angry at a new statement by 343 Industries, regarding new modes and playlists coming to Infinite soon.

Halo Infinite Fans Are Mad at 343’s Recent Statement on Playlists

Halo Infinite is finally about to get new modes and playlists coming to the game, but fans are angry at 343 Industries once again.

Yesterday, Halo Community Manager John Junyszek announced that Halo Infinite is getting permanent Fiesta, Swat, Free-for-All, and Slayer playlists soon.

And while many fans were excited at the prospect of enjoying the returning game modes, others are taking issue with the addition.

“But not having them ready to go for launch kind of seems like a massive oversight, Reddit user kickstartacraze writes. “Did they really think these few playlists we have now would just be good enough? How do you just not think to include a team slayer playlist?”

None of the promised game modes will be making it to Halo Infinite by launch day either, it seems.

And while fans are quick to point out that they can make the game mode in Custom Games easily, Community Director Brian Jarrard wants to make it clear just how much effort goes into each change made.

“Nothing is really as simple or easy as many assume and the team is just as interested in evolving and adding new experiences – when they are ready.”

Unfortunately, fans are taking issue with this statement too. After all, none of the upcoming game modes are actually new experiences, rather staples of the Halo franchise.

What’s more, many still want to know when classic Halo game modes like Infection, Griffball, and Team Snipers will be arriving.

In case you missed it, we just found out about another big change coming to Halo Infinite on launch day.

And these secret playable game modes are in Halo Infinite right now too!
