Halo Infinite’s long-awaited Forge mode, which allows players to create all sorts of custom content, never made it to the game’s launch last year. It’s likely still months out from a release. Developer 343 Industries has now explained the delay in a little more detail, saying it was necessary to ensure the studio reached its benchmark for quality.
“It broke our hearts to not be able to launch Forge alongside the rest of Infinite but to ensure it meets the bar we’re setting for it to achieve, this massive overhaul to Forge in Infinite just wasn’t able to make it out before the end of last year,” 343 stated in a blog post.
The new version of Forge will offer “another generational leap forward” in its capabilities, the company teased, adding that it will contain “many of the community’s highly requested features…”
Players will be able to create “WAY more impressive and creative gameplay experiences inside of Infinite,” by using the new Forge, 343 said.
Also in this post, 343 stated Halo Infinite’s Forge mode will “grow and expand in capabilities” as time goes on with post-launch updates. The modes is coming sometime during Halo Infinite’s Season 3, so that release is still a distance away. Members of the Halo Insiders will get to try the mode first and provide feedback to 343. It will be worth the wait for our Forge community and fans of the content they are able to create!” the developer explained.
