Halo: Infinite is set to receive a major mid-season update very soon according to developer 343 Industries. In a Waypoint forum post, they've gone into detail on some of the changes that they're looking at.
It's not clear yet why the changes are deemed too pressing but with Halo Infinite seasons being quite drawn out, it does make sense not to hold off until the next season begins.
Here's everything you need to know ahead of the Halo: Infinite mid-season update going live later this week.
Halo: Infinite mid-season update Release Date
While not confirmed, the mid-season update for Halo: Infinite is currently going through certification and 343 hopes it will release on Thursday, 24 February. We expect there to be a short period of downtime for the update to be implemented but when this would take place is hard to pin a time on.
We'll be sure to keep you updated with the latest once the update is either confirmed or live.
