  • Halo is set to resolve the cheating issue that gamers have been complaining about since the launch.
  • Most of the reported issues occurred during the holiday, thus making it difficult for 343 industries to fix. 
  • On January 13, the Halo franchise will be shutting down online services for all the Halo games you can play on Xbox 360.

343 Industries is hard at work making fixes and improvements to Halo Infinite. Most of these bugs occurred during the holiday break making them difficult to resolve. 

Yesterday, Halo Community Director Brian Jarrard explained in a forum update that the next patch should fix the problems with Big Team Battle matchmaking that have plagued the game over the past few weeks.

Cheating problem fix

The next thing on the company’s to-do list is a fix for the game’s cheating problem. Players have been complaining about it since launch.

We know there are a number of other topics you’re eager to hear about – including some issues with instances of cheating. The team has been working on a patch for mid-Feb that looks to address this and other things, and we’ll have more details to come as we get closer to release, Jarrard stated.

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer will have to deal with cheaters, just like many other popular multiplayer games have. While gaming on PC or Xbox is enjoyable for most, it doesn’t help that cross-platform play is impossible to opt-out of.

The multiplayer mode in Halo Infinite will be free-to-play, which means it’s easy for cheaters who get caught and banned to create another Xbox Live account and re-offend.

Online services shutdown

Halo fans! The Halo franchise development team 343 Industries will be shutting down online services for all the Halo games you can play on the Xbox 360 this January 13.

This update will affect the older versions of Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, and Halo 3. All offline gameplay should continue to function normally.
