3.6
343 Industries’ Halo Infinite has had a strong launch thanks to its solid gameplay mechanics, although the lack of content has quickly caught up with fans, leading to a lot of frustration amongst the community. As we reach the imminent release of the game’s second season this May, 343 has outlined the many improvements that fans can expect from it.

As detailed in a recent Halo Waypoint blog, the developer has revealed that there will be both major and minor improvements to the audio, matchmaking playlists, stability improvements to the PC version, and much more. You can check out the detailed list down below.

Recently, 343 Industries also acknowledged its communication issues leading players to running out of patience.
