Halo Infinite Season 2 will not come with online campaign co-op when it launches on May 3, 343 Industries has announced. It is expected to start "later" in the second season, with no exact release date known.

“IT WILL TAKE MORE TIME TO LAND A FULL QUALITY 4-PLAYER NETWORK CO-OP EXPERIENCE.
Halo Infinite creative director Joseph Staten said 343 "aims to provide campaign network co-op later in Season 2," but won't bundle it at launch. However, it's unclear whether split-screen and online co-op will be released at the same time, as Staten only mentions that network co-op is planned for Season 2.
“It will take longer to land a high-quality, fully functional 4-player network co-op experience in the huge, open world of Halo Infinite,” Staten explains in the post. "We're also committed to delivering an excellent 2-player split-screen co-op experience on all Xbox consoles, from the original Xbox One to Xbox Series X - the non-linear, wide-open sections of the campaign feature great challenges for split screen, which took us longer to solve.
Staten also provides an update on Forge, which is still on track for a Season 3 release. A small group of players are currently testing the level editor, Staten says, with public flights planned "later this year". At launch, Season 2 brings new Arena and Big Team Battle maps called Catalyst and Breaker respectively. Along with the highly anticipated return of King of the Hill, Season 2 will also introduce two new game modes: Land Grab and Last Spartan Standing, which 343 describes as a "free-for-all elimination mode."
Halo Infinite officially launched last December without Forge or a co-op campaign. 343 Industries originally planned campaign co-op for the release of Season 2, but the launch was further delayed after the developers decided to extend Season 1 to May.
