Halo Infinite Team Working on Fix for Big Team Battle

Halo Infinite’s Big Team Battle has had matchmaking issues since launch, but 343 Industries has finally given an update on the upcoming fix.

Halo Infinite‘s Big Team Battle has been plagued with matchmaking bugs ever since the multiplayer aspect of the game launched last November, but luckily, 343 Industries is working on fixing it. Up until now, it was certainly possible for players to load into Big Team Battle matches, one of the game’s biggest multiplayer draws, but it frequently resulted in infinite loading screens and dropped games causing plenty of fans to give up on the game mode altogether.


According to an update post on Halo Waypoint, Community Director Brian Jarrard reassured fans that now that the entire studio is back from holiday vacation it’s devoted even more staff to working on fixing Halo Infinite‘s matchmaking issues. The fix is currently in the QA phase, so if all goes well, it should go live sometime soon.

Jarrard feels confident about the fix as he states that “we are not seeing this issue occur internally using this build,” but also says that he isn’t able to give an exact timeline on when the patch will be published. He does say that it won’t be live this week, but he hopes that it’s “not too much further out” than that.

In addition to fixes to Big Team Battle, Jarrard confirms that 343 Industries is also working on fixes for ranked matchmaking and is looking into fixes for Halo Infinite‘s cheater issues. While those updates are in the works, Jarrard clarifies that Big Team Battle is the priority until the patch goes live as matchmaking stability takes a higher priority than other problems, but he does stress that the team will be addressing other pertinent issues in the weeks to come.

343 Industries has been quick to address a lot of the issues that have sprung up in the time since Halo Infinite‘s release such as the problems with battle pass progression so it’s good to know that the studio is still listening to its community when it comes to fixes and updates. One thing that 343 doesn’t seem likely to address is the controversy over cosmetic prices, however.

Since launch, fans have been unhappy with how much Halo Infinite‘s cosmetics cost, but given Halo‘s switch to being a free-to-play shooter, its loot prices are very much in-line with its free-to-play competition such as Fortnite, Valorant, and Apex Legends. It’s still to be seen if 343 will reduce prices due to community outcry, but so far the studio has been firm in its decision to price cosmetics at a competitive level.

Halo Infinite is available now for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
