A co-op mode for the latest Halo game Halo Infinite will release sometime later this year. While the online multiplayer has been the largest draw for the game, fans have been waiting to be able to play PvE missions with friends.
In a recent tweet, the developers explained that co-op for Halo Infinite is on the way, but it first will need to pass muster in the Halo Insiders program. The insiders program is functionally an open beta, Halo Infinite players can sign up to be an Insider with few restrictions. Microsoft offers a similar program with their title Sea of Thieves.
With #HaloInfinite campaign network co-op arriving later this year, we're planning to flight it to Halo Insiders in July. Register and make sure your Halo Insider profile is up to date for a chance to participate!

With its battlepass style progression and focus on multiplayer, Halo Infinite has received constant updates since the game released in November, whether its bug fixes, balances, or adding basic features.
Halo Insiders will have access to features before other players:
The Halo Insider Program is the official way for Halo fans and community members to partner with 343 Industries to help improve our games, products, and services. As a Halo Insider, you’ll have the opportunity to provide feedback and insights that help shape and inform current and future Halo franchise initiatives. Halo Insiders will also have exclusive opportunities to participate in public “flights” (hands-on playtests) of in-progress Halo game releases and provide feedback to our development teams.
Players can begin joining their friends in co-op adventures this July. If you’d rather wait until the feature leaves the Insider program, it’s possible you could be waiting a lot longer.
Halo Infinite is available on Windows PC (via the Microsoft Store, Steam), Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. The game is also available on Xbox Game Pass. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough review on the game here.
