343 explains Halo Infinite progression system as criticism mounts


By Ray Ampoloquio September 21, 2021

343 Industries is under heavy fire for its decision to switch up the progression system of Halo Infinite.

Unlike its predecessors, Halo Infinite is not going to give players XP for completing matches.

Instead, the developers want progression in the game to come from all the challenges listed on the Battle Pass, among others.

Due to the mounting criticism, 343 has issued a statement.

343 clarifies that it will continue to look for ways to optimizing Infinite's progression system post-launch.

For now, though, 343 assured fans that Halo Infinite will have more than enough Daily and Weekly challenges to complete.

343 also added that they designed the challenges so that they "never directly conflict with the objective of the match."

Only time will tell if 343's latest statement is enough to ease fan concern. 

What's sure is that 343 is in desperate need of a win for all the criticism it's receiving.

Halo Infinite is finally set to release on December 8, 2021, so there's that. 

Fans can also look forward to two technical previews over the next two weekends. 

Fingers-crossed, fans will have nothing but good things to say about Infinite in the coming weeks.
