It looks like our hopes and prayers for a proper fix for Halo Infinite's Big Team Battle issues are finally being answered. Halo Community Director at 343 Industries, Brian Jarrard (AKA Sketch) took to the Halo Waypoint forums to talk over what's coming in Infinite's next patch.
The team is confident it has a fix in place for the numerous matchmaking issues regarding Big Team Battle. And, because these issues are so widespread, this fix is being prioritised over others in the pipeline over at 343.
A strike force continued to work on this [BTB fix] over the break and we’re optimistic to say we believe we have a fix in hand for the core issue. This went into QA last week and so far it’s looking positive - we are not seeing this issue occur internally using this build.
For now we are opting to slipstream the BTB fixes given the broad scope of impact on all players.
While BTB issues are clearly the priority right now for Halo Infinite, other problems are being looked into. Chief among which is cheating, which seems to be next in the pipeline.
We know there are a number of other topics you’re eager to hear about - including some issues with instances of cheating. The team has been working on a patch for mid-Feb that looks to address this and other things, and we’ll have more details to come as we get closer to release.
We have to admit that while we're happy to see BTB being prioritised, another month of cheaters could prove problematic. Hopefully, given the time needed, that mid-February patch will help solve most of our problems regarding cheaters.
