Halo Infinite Co-Op’s Lack of Matchmaking Options Makes It Hard to Find Teammates
Halo Infinite’s much-awaited campaign co-op beta is live now. Unfortunately, the experience was not as fans had hoped. Apparently, multiple fans have been struggling to find anyone to play with them.
Due to the multiple delays, many players who played Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode months ago have already drifted away to other games. With that said, a lot of those who remain have no other choice but to find teammates online. Unfortunately, this is where the struggle begins.
Halo Infinite devs confirmed that the game will not have any co-op matchmaking options available. Fans who queue up to play cooperatively will have to do so with a mutual. Sadly, it does not look like is going to change for the game’s final release either.
“Online matchmaking will not be available with final co-op,” a rep from Xbox confirmed. “We encourage you to continue to use the Halo LFG and the new Discord voice call feature on Xbox to find players to party up with as you continue playing the beta.”
Some players used the official Halo Discord channel to find others they can play with. Unfortunately, a lot of these requests fell to deaf ears. Many fans had to wait for days before another player reached out and offered to run some co-op with them. This is despite the fact that there is a dedicated channel for fans looking for a group to run through campaign missions together. What makes finding teammates even more challenging is that the channel is not game-specific.
There is a lot of players who are looking for others to do Legendary runs of a game in the Master Chief Collection. Unfortunately, not too many are answering requests for a Halo Infinite co-op teammate. After all, it has been eight months since the campaign launched to the gaming public.
