Halo Infinite Mid-Season Update Patch Notes Today (February 24)

The mid-season update lands today!

February 24, 2022

A brand new update for Halo Infinite will be deployed later today (February 24), bringing plenty of fixes and improvements as part of the mid-season patch.

Unfortunately, it looks like there won’t be any new content such as maps, modes, or weapons included in today’s update as the developers are solely focused on bug fixes and overall improvements.

Although this is sure to disappoint much of the dwindling Halo Infinite fan base, 343 Industries have said that new content is on the way with Season 2. So, in the meantime, here’s what you can expect from the February 24 Halo Infinite patch.
