Halo Infinite multiplayer will be getting a Slayer playlist next week, on December 14th to be exact. The news comes via an official update on the Halo subreddit in which is was confirmed that Halo Infinite will get Slayer, Fiesta, FFA, and Tactical Slayer (SWAT) on the 14th. This offering will be basic to start with as the new variants 343 is working on will not be ready before the Christmas break. The update will also remove some mode specific challenges, and make changes to others. You can read the statement below.

Last weekend I said I’d be back once we had updates to share around near term playlist plans for Halo Infinite. I’m happy to report that a Slayer playlist is officially locked and loaded for the update next week. Four new playlists: Slayer, Fiesta, FFA, and Tactical Slayer (SWAT) will all be added via a services update on Tuesday, Dec. 14.

As I noted last week, the team’s original plans for a Slayer playlist included a variety of new variants that weren’t going to be ready in time to deploy before the holiday break. To address player feedback for Slayer in the near term, we’ll be releasing a basic Slayer offering to start and will look to bolster and expand with more variants in a future update.

Next week’s update will also include adjustments to challenges including removing some particularly frustrating mode-specific ones, reducing some requirements for others, making the weekly ultimate challenge less intensive (getting there is tough enough), and adding brand new challenges specific to the new playlists. Personally I’m eager to check out a new challenge category that’s based on accumulating player score (a small initial step towards ‘performance based XP’). We’ll have some more details to share on Halo Waypoint next week.

The statement also notes that the development team is aware of issues players are facing in BTB, and investigating. On top of that Ranked multiplayer is being reviewed and player feedback is being followed up to check for any issues that are popping up in the multiplayer mode.
