Halo Infinite’s first season has been an awkward mess

Halo Infinite’s unusually long first season is coming to a close. On May 3rd, Season 2 will introduce two new maps, three new modes, a new Battle Pass, and a shorter 3-month run time, hopefully giving Infinite a much-needed shot in the arm.

Suffice to say, the atmosphere in the Halo community wasn’t great on the eve of Season 2. Infinity may be a solid shooter, but its first season has suffered from setbacks after setbacks. Even me, the site’s resident Halo fan, quit the game entirely after just a month.
