343 Industries will be looking to incorporate Forge maps into matchmaking soon.
343 Industries continues to work hard on Halo 5: Guardians, offering an update to the game’s recently released Forge mode along with teasing future game types.
As posted on the Community Update for this week, the developer confirmed that it’s working on getting some community favourite Forge maps into matchmaking before January end.
“Another item that is top of mind (for both you and us) is getting some Forge favorites into matchmaking, as well as the general surfacing of awesome Forge stuff. We’ve been working with a variety of Forge communities to identify some of the top maps out there, and building out plans with the Multiplayer Team on a few different ways that we plan to bring these into the matchmaking lineup and places like Waypoint, Twitter, live streams, and more. These playlists are in the works as we speak, and we’re looking forward to featuring the best community maps and game types, ranging from competitive maps to classic remakes to wacky and fun custom-built map and game variants. To see just a few of the maps we’re keeping an eye on, be sure to check out the Community Spotlight section below.”
For those eager for new game types, the developer is indeed interesting. It’s just that you’ll need to wait a bit longer for Griffball and Fiesta.
“We know many of you are looking forward to jumping into new Halo 5 game types, and the team is hard at work on a wide variety of modes – ranging from competitive modes to Grifball to Fiesta to more. These are currently being slated into future Halo 5 updates, and although final timelines aren’t set just yet, things are going through engineering, test and polish…” This month’s update, Infinity’s Armor, was also teased via some new images.
