A new roadmap provides insight into what's coming for Halo Infinite through the rest of 2022.
Network (or online) campaign co-op is currently slated for a late August 2022 launch, alongside an update bringing the ability to replay missions. Forge mode is scheduled to enter beta testing in September 2022, as 343 Industries expresses a desire to get the mode "into your hands sooner rather than later."

As part of this roadmap, the length of Halo Infinite Season 2 has also been extended. Season 3 is now slated to begin on Nov. 8, 2022. According to 343 Industries head of creative Joseph Staten, the "primary reason" for extending the length of the season is to allow for more quality-of-life updates, while maintaining the health of the development team.
Staten also shared that Season 2 is introducing "multiplayer narrative events" that feature a player's Spartan in an ongoing storyline, though it's currently unclear exactly how these events will unfold. Halo Infinite Season 3 is set to include splitscreen co-op, as well as a new Battle Pass, more maps, and more modes.

6 month seasons are too long. The game is going to die.
If you're that dependent on 'seasons' to stay interested in the game, it sounds like you didn't care for game that much to begin with.
I enjoyed the campaign quite a bit and did all of the side quests on my first playthrough and MP is fun. They nailed the gameplay, but MP at this point is barebones in terms of game modes they have had for decades and playlists, lobbies, etc. No reason after 6 years for a game to launch with so little after the history of a franchise like this.
Well, when 343 didn't bother to put co-op, a full ge's worth of multiplayer maps, Forge, or much of anything by modern standards into the launch game, player are sadly left with garbage Battle Pass as one of the few pieces of ongoing content to actually do.
I was waiting for co op and the ability to replay missions but I'll probably just uninstall the game now and might reinstall is any dlc content gets released. We shall see.
Looks like my hopes of having some coop specific achievements as an incentive to go back and do it again are not going to happen... Sad. I got all the achievements in the SP and after 2 playthroughs I really don't want to go right back.
