Update: Halo Infinite's head of design says multiplayer changes are at the "top of my list."

Yesterday on November 28, 343's head of design Jerry Hook posted the two tweets seen just below to his personal Twitter account. In the tweets, Hook acknowledges the complaints currently leveled against Halo Infinite's multiplayer progression system and notes that once the team has returned from their current break, they'll be straight into work on fixing the issues. In other words, Halo Infinite's designers are already hard at work on fixing the game's progression issues.

Original: Halo Infinite's community director has commented on how progression changes are being handled at developer 343.

Yesterday on November 23, community director Brian Jarrard posted the tweet below, addressing the request for changes to Halo Infinite's multiplayer progression. In short, Jarrard cautions that although the changes being asked for by players are being listened to and acted upon, they're ultimately going to take time to come to fruition.

The simple reason for this is that the development team at 343 are being given some well-deserved time off. Halo Infinite's multiplayer open beta only just launched earlier this month, in a surprise announcement from Xbox, and so the development team has been hard at work ever since, making sure the surprise multiplayer launch went smoothly.

So although the changes to Halo Infinite's progression system are going to take time, it's good to know that changes are being made at 343. The main point of contention when the multiplayer open beta launched is that challenges weren't rewarding players on their in-game performance, and were instead giving out meagre XP rewards, and the following day, 343 commented that they were actively listening to all feedback surrounding the system.

343 has already made changes to this progression system however, rolling out a daily challenge tasking players with simply hopping into the game mode of their choice. Further, bigger changes are obviously coming later down the line for Halo Infinite's XP-based progression system, and will make the Halo Infinite Battle Pass easier to progress, but it's important to remember that smaller tweaks and adjustments have actually already been made.
