Sadly, couch co-op for the campaign won’t meet the same window, instead being pushed out to November at best, which aligns with the game’s expected third season of content. Furthermore, an open beta for the game’s creative mode Forge is expected to roll out in September.
When it was originally confirmed that the team wouldn’t make launch for both campaign co-op and Forge, the team had targeted a Season 2 launch for campaign co-op. While they’re still admittedly displeased with their ability to roll out new content in a timely manner, 343 Industries has committed first and foremost to the health and wellbeing of their team.
“We know we need to deliver more content and more features more quickly,” the team wrote. “Staying true to priority zero means that sometimes we need to slow down in order to stay healthy and move faster later. But we’re also aggressively looking at ways to accelerate.”
