Halo Infinite is one of the games that needs no introduction. The name speaks for itself; it has held a special place in fans’ hearts over the years, And one of the main reasons Halo Games have stayed relevant is the constant creation of new and varied content.
At this point, Infinite is at the end of its second season, known as Lone Wolves. And while Season 2 of the multiplayer shooter hasn’t been without its flaws, it looks like it’s about time we learn more about the game’s future.
