'Halo 4' title update planned for February, Specializations unlocks coming soon

XMNR: 343 Industries has been on vacation with the holidays but they returned Wednesday with news on what's coming up for "Halo 4" in the next couple of months. This includes weekly Spartan Ops and multiplayer playlists updates plus the long awaited Specialization unlocks. There's also a title update planned to come along with the Majestic map pack. (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

Sweet and awesome, I can not wait for the Grifball playlist to come out for Halo 4.

What about the fileshare? Not to sound harsh but it's really ridiculous that it still isn't fully usable...

Glad specializations are being unlocked for everyone, it was pretty dumb that they would lock that kind of content from people. Luckily I got mine on the 19th

Rotational playlist are great but I really think some should be added permanently. Playlist like Team Snipers/Doubles/KOTH/Standard FFA should never be gone. Really want multi-team to return, always loved that playlist.

I stopped playing after less than 2 weeks. I refuse to play a laggy game because Microsoft refuse to add in dedicated servers. In Australia, it sucks. At least in the US you have a larger local community.

Not to take anything away from 343i. Halo 4 is a 10/10 game IMO, just sucks that I payed more for the game than most and am not able to get the same fair online experience people across the world get. That is why I don't subscribe to XBL. Can't even access season pass content even though I have downloaded it (from dl history).

Not happy so far, although the gameplay variety in Halo has always been top tier.

You must not live in a crappy area that a lot of unlucky Australians live in, where Telstra's monopoly forces you to pay over $100 a month for point three megabit upload. I have been putting up with this shit all gen, and nothing is going to change.

That's what happens when idiots sell the telecommunication lines off to 1 company.

Sucks, as I am the biggest Halo fan I know. Read all the books, comics, and the short comic episodes.

To be fair to Microsoft, Australia is the land of crappy internet.

Only 3 months to late.. All the stuff thats coming Feb community has stated we needed since launch. The Holiday season this is the gaming industry worse excuse I've ever heard from a developer. Unless you have everything in place before launch don't launch then go on vacation for a month. Then they wonder why launch week had 400,000+ online every night an now it can barely pull in 150,000 on a busy gaming night. 343i made a great game don't take my negative comments the wrong way, But there support for the game post launch is horrible.

While I sort of agree with you, do you have any idea what it's like working in the game industry? For 343i to get the game released for November probably involved a ridiculous amount of hours leading up to it's launch. We did need an update and we needed it before Christmas however give them a bit of a break, they're only human and have lives and deserve some time off to spend with their families.

So we will be able to play the forge maps in match making? excellent.

Understand that completely Breeze but the entire month just gone? I mean come on I could understand a week or 2 for Christmas an New Years but it was like they put the towel up the following Tuesday when gay ass COD came out. Bungie not once ever did that no matter what the release date was. They crunched the hours after the game launched fixed it all up how the community wanted it then took there breaks. An the whole ordeal with the specializations an people in countries outside the US was just a joke. They deleted forum post an completely ignored people on twitter. They have made IMO the best Halo since Halo 2 but there people skills need some serious working on. One thing I miss about Bungie, They made the community feel like we were part of the team.
