343 Industries is yet to give audiences a proper taste of Season 3 of Halo Infinite, which will come out on March 7, 2023, following an earlier delay. But, while 343 continues to work on the game's upcoming season in secret, leakers are busy dropping info straight from the horse's mouth. This time around, a credible source has gotten its hands on two maps that might arrive in Halo Infinite in a few months.
According to Leaks_infinite, the maps coming to Halo Infinite are Oasis and Cliffhanger. The leaker describes the former as a "highly classified" setting in high altitudes and the latter is a "new genesis".

Based on the leaked images, we can see what a giant spire in the background in Oasis and Cliffhanger is a snowy terrain.
Halo Infinite is in desperate need of an infusion of new content. Although a recent update helps, Halo Infinite still lags behind its competition like Battlefield 2042, Modern Warfare 2, and Warzone 2.0.
We'll have to wait to see if the Season 3 update will help but the new maps won't hurt. Halo Infinite currently splits 12 maps between its Arena and Big Team Battle modes. Adding two more will make it 14 and 343 may have others planned. The studio has more time to work on new maps and content now that online campaign co-op is finally online.
Speaking of Halo Infinite, Xbox Game Studios head, Matt Booty, recently addressed the game's post-launch content problems. Finally, 343 Industries Forge lead designer and head of live service Sean Baron confirmed that the split-screen co-op was nearly complete before 343 decided to scrap it completely.
