Halo Infinite developer Joseph Staten has hinted towards the return of some favorite cards from the older titles after the expected release of Season 2.
The release of Halo Infinite in late 2021 got off to a great start. In fact, it looked like the new game, developed by 343 Industries, was ahead of its rivals Call of Duty: Vanguard and Battlefield 2042.
However, the delayed release of the game’s second season caused some dismay. While the anticipated update brought some life to the game after the update finally arrived, it was met with outrage as the launch was “bumpy”.
But as we watch Season 3, a developer has been teasing that some fan-favorite Halo cards could make their way into the 2021 title.
In a podcast released on May 7 from Kinda Funny, Halo Infinite’s Head of Creative Joesph Staten was asked how easy it would be for the developers to just flip a switch and release old fan favorite maps in the new game leading up to Season 3.
“I can talk about some things, but not others. There are some great Halo cards out there,” the developer said. “I think we all have our personal favorites, Guardian, Gulch, Pit. There are a lot of cards that are great, right?
“I think it would be great to play on those maps again, don’t you think? Like it sounds like something fun,” he added.

Lately, 343 Industries has come under a lot of fire from the community and popular creators like NICKMERCS. The streaming star struck, calling the dev team “terrible” — warning players not to hope for the rumored release of a Halo Battle Royale mode.
Only time will tell if the developers will be able to get things right in the next update.
