Halo Infinite Cheating Fix Plans

An update on the Halo Waypoint Forums has details on a patch 343 Industries is working on to fix Big Team Battle (BTB) problems in Halo Infinite (thanks Game Informer). Word is that this is entering testing, but there's no ETA yet on a release. There's also word on a patch that will hopefully arrive next month to fix cheating problems in the first-person shooter. Here's a bit:
We know there are a number of other topics you’re eager to hear about - including some issues with instances of cheating. The team has been working on a patch for mid-Feb that looks to address this and other things, and we’ll have more details to come as we get closer to release. We are actively triaging and still working to get as much as we can into this Feb update while still ensuring no negative impacts or regressions to other parts of the game.

For now we are opting to slipstream the BTB fixes given the broad scope of impact on all players. That’s not to say issues like cheating or wonkiness with the ranked experience aren’t important, but they have other dependencies and are on a bit longer timeline than this BTB fix which is nearly ready to go.
