A hotfix addressing ongoing matchmaking issues related to Halo Infinite’s Big Team Battle mode is supposed to arrive on January 18th, according to the game’s developer 343 Industries.
The patch completed testing and is currently going through Xbox’s certification right now. Big Team Battle has been suffering from a number of unplayability issues over the last few weeks due to matchmaking problems that would cause players to disconnect or fail to load into the match. This issue is more severe for large groups.
As a thank you for players waiting patiently for these problems to resolved, 343 is giving out five XP boosts and five challenge swaps to all players who log in following the release of next week’s hotfix. The free items will be available to claim for about a month.
343 Industries has another patch coming in mid-February that will address other issues, but 343 hasn’t disclosed what the patch will include yet. They are also fiddling with the microtransactions as well, which will be arriving the same day as this hotfix.
