Season 3 of Halo Infinite No Longer Includes Popular Maps and Modes
The third season of Halo Infinite has arrived and unfortunately, as a result of its launch, several beloved maps and modes have been taken out of matchmaking. The latest season was much anticipated by gamers, but it appears that the new content has caused a decrease in the number of the older maps accessible.
The third season of Halo Infinite has been largely popular amongst its fanbase, with many commending the new equipment added. Players are pleased with the new maps, and the narrative event promised for Season 3 has exceeded the expectations of many. On the other hand, the fact that some of the previous maps have been removed has been met with discontent.
Following the Season 3 Update, an enigmatic Easter egg has been added to the map of Halo Infinite.
Despite going unnoticed in the first few days after its release, YouTuber Mint Blitz posted a video discussing all of the changes that had been made to the Quick Play and Big Team Battle multiplayer playlists, which are the most popular in the game. Among these changes was the removal of Halo Infinite’s remake of The Pit, completely removing it from Quick Play. This was followed by the removal of all variants of the Attrition game mode, as well as the maps Argyle, Behemoth, and Catalyst. This is a huge loss of content, especially after facing criticisms in the past for the limited amount of available maps and modes.
It’s worth noting that Halo Infinite hasn’t taken away maps entirely. Gamers can still gain access to them in custom games, with the custom game browser making it easier to find them. However, those wanting to simply play on them without the hassle are left out. The main problem is the smaller player base. In some locations, the only playlists players can find matches for our Quick Play and Big Team Battle, essentially removing the maps and modes for many gamers. This is unfortunately becoming a trend with live service games lately. Case in point – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 removed the recently-introduced Gun Game mode from Season 2 only a few weeks after its release.
At the moment, 343 Industries cannot afford any further unfavorable reviews from their fans regarding Halo Infinite. The game launched lacking several of the series’ classic components, and players were not happy with that. There were even rumors that the studio would be taken away from the game they were formed to safeguard. It has taken a while to get the game to a better place, and Season 3 is thought to be a major turning point for Halo Infinite. It is hoped that 343 Industries can turn it all around and let gamers experience the maps and modes they have come to enjoy in Halo Infinite.
Halo Infinite can be played on PC, Xbox One and the Xbox Series X/S consoles, which have just been released.
