Halo Infinite players are glitching split-screen co-op after devs give up
This story about doing it yourself, boiled down, in 1:12 minutes.
What’s the fuss?
After promising a key feature, the developers of the latest Halo game have abandoned its implementation. Fans have figured out a way to do it themselves.
2021’s Halo Infinite was supposed to be a return to form for the longstanding sci-fi shooter franchise.
- Although many praised the game for its story and gameplay, it is heavily criticized for being too light on content — much of which was promised down the line.
- One of these promised features included local co-operative play in the game’s story mode, as the current release only supports single player.
- However, players have since found a way to do it themselves via a glitch in the game’s menu allowing friends to play the game on the same couch.
- The developers have yet to acknowledge this glitch and may or may not patch this in a future update.
Boiling it down
Despite starting off strong, Halo Infinite hasn’t had a great first year.
- Fans have been quite vocal about their disappointment in the game, which has been speculated to be because of key employee turnover and poor management.
- Halo’s player base and esports viewership have both considerably decreased, indicating that a lot needs to be done to turn the game around.
If players can execute this feature themselves, it’s questionable why the developers can’t officially support it themselves.
- With the game only supporting a fraction of the features compared to previous entries, millions of players have already given up on the game out of impatience and have moved on to other competitors.
