Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries has provided an update on Big Team Battle’s ongoing issues and changes to the in-game store.
Within a blog post, 343 said it was gathering telemetry data from the January 19th patch, and has now sent a patch in for certification for the mode in an attempt to whip it into shape. If the patch is approved, it will launch tomorrow at the earliest.
Big Team Battle has been going through issues for quite some time, so if this patch properly fixes the mode, it would be much welcome news.
As for the in-game shop adjustments, 343 started off by saying it was monitoring feedback about the recent release of individual items for sale. 343 Industries also said it understands that people want the option to purchase the bundle or pieces of it separately. The store doesn’t currently allow this, but 343 is looking into how it can “better meet the needs and expectations” when it comes to the shop.
“Through the rest of Season 1, our focus is to provide a better offering of individual items and bundles to help players get the customization they would like without having to buy larger bundles,” 343 said.
The studio acknowledged that Halo Infinite’s shop has not always been “delivering on value, quality, or price,” and they are working on finding a good balance. “The offers we are running now, and will continue to run throughout S1, are to help us learn what is working and what’s not. This will take time, but we know that our learnings here will positively impact Season 2 right off the bat,” 343 said.
“There have also been some questions about how and if previous bundles would return to the Shop, and right now we are looking at this on a bundle-by-bundle basis. Some bundles will come back into rotation and some will be broken up to allow players to purchase their individual items. We’ll have more info to share on this in the future.”
