Halo Infinite was wrong to release multiplayer early

On November 8 2021, the 20th anniversary of the original Halo, 343 Industries dropped a bombshell. Halo Infinite’s free-to-play multiplayer went live, kicking off season one and letting us jump into the complete online arena a full month before the planned December 8 release.

It was probably the best way 343 could have celebrated the series’ birthday. But a month on, with the discussion around Infinite’s multiplayer reaching venomous levels of ire, I’ve wondered if the game hasn’t hamstrung itself by splitting in two like this.
