When did Halo Infinite start ranked play?

Halo Infinite, unlike previous Halo games, and like most games from the more recent batch of first-person shooters, has let players compete in ranked matches since it launched. Put it simply, this means that the sooner you got on the game and started playing ranked, the higher up you probably are on the ladder right now.

Having said that, the ranked system requires that you complete 10 matches of ranked play to gain your first ranked placement. Most players end up in Diamond 1 after the placement matches. How you ascend or descend the ranks from there is completely up to you.

From the above graph, we can see that the largest concentration of Halo Infinite players in the ranked open queue are in the Gold and Platinum ranks. We can also see that there is a significant spike in Diamond 1 but only because of how ranked matches in the game works. Players are placed into Diamond 1 as soon as they complete their 10 placement matches.

The average rank in the Ranked Open Queue on Halo Infinite is Platinum I.
