Halo Infinite finally launched last week, transporting Master Chief into a new generation. While the campaign was applauded by most, some were disappointed at the lack of a replayable option for missions.
But, fear not Spartans! 343 Industries' Associate Creative Director, Paul Crocker talked more about Halo Infinite's future in an interview with Stevivor. In doing so, Crocker confirmed that they are working on an update that will allow players to revisit their favourite moments in the soldier's journey.
Halo Infinite Will Let You Replay Campaign Missions Soon
Crocker gave no release date for the feature, but the repeatability of quests will be added in a later update.
You cannot replay missions in the campaign at this point of time. It’s part of what is coming later....we haven’t announced a date. The reason I‘m being a bit cagey is I honestly don’t know exactly, but people are working that even now. It’s coming… is the only answer we can give.
Replaying missions in Halo has been a common feature available in every game up until now. The creative director explains why the option wasn't available at launch, asserting that it was due to the open-world aspect of the sequel:
The main reason is because, being a more open game and a nonlinear game, it became incredibly challenging. It’s not that it doesn’t work, it’s just that it’s not finished.
We made the decision to make a better game, to improve the quality of the game so we could then add the features — just like co-op. And that is that is disappointing for us as the people who made it, but it was, also, the better option for us to make a better game and add that later.
