Halo Infinite Big Team Battle mode has a big issue, hotfix releasing soon

Over the past week, social media was flooded with reports of players having issues connecting with friends in 12-person-per-side Big Team Battle mode. As reports pointed out, some players got dropped matches or ended up with mismatched team sizes. To fix it, the developers tried to bring down the players number to 10 on each side, but that didn’t help. Players’ frustration ‘exacerbated’ as they were unable to access the BTB-themed weekly challenges as the mode was ‘dysfunctional’ for the most part.

The developers acknowledging it has promised to release a hotfix or patch for this issue, although a tentative release date hasn’t been revealed yet.

“Next steps are to continue testing and then move into the certification process as we prepare to release a hot fix / patch for this issue. It’s a little too soon to give an ETA yet but please know our goal is to release this as soon as we can while ensuring it doesn’t have any other unintended impact to the retail product. It won’t be this week, but we hope it’s not too much further out and we’ll share an update as soon as we have line of sight on a release date (once we clear ‘cert’ we are then ready to ship),” 343 Industries said in the forum.

To recall, many players in November complained about not being able to earn XP at the end of every match. However, 343 Industries managed to address the issue overnight by changing the way daily challenges worked. While that seems to be a minor bug, the Big Team Battle bugs will take time to get fixed, but at least a solution is in the works.
