Halo Infinite devs have finally responded to the game’s frustrating desync issues, that have left players frustrated and struggling with buggy gameplay.

343 Industries have been investigating some of Halo Infinite’s biggest problems, such as Big Team Battle’s matchmaking and hackers. Their aim is to improve the gameplay experience for fans as much as possible.

Now, the developers are focusing their efforts on one of the game’s most prominent issues: desyncs. 343 Industries have reassured Halo Infinite fans that they’re aware of this issue and have promised a fix.

Jerry Hook, Head of Design at 343 Industries, stated that they’re looking into Halo Infinite’s issues: “We are jumping back in and it looks like the great engineers have over the break been working on the issues with BTB and PC cheating.”

He then added that the desync problem is “being looked at.” Online games can sometimes get ruined by connection issues that cause a desync between people’s connections in a lobby, making players appear in the wrong spot.

This problem has persisted across game modes like Big Team Battle and Team Slayer. It seems that fans won’t have to put up with this issue much longer, as it will get patched up in a future update.

At the time of writing, the devs haven’t given us an ETA for when the desync issues will be patched. Halo Infinite fans have plenty of fixes to look forward to, with 343 promising a patch for mid-February.

We’ll hopefully see major improvements to the game’s matchmaking servers as well as the problem of hackers.
