Halo Infinite Season 3 release date: When is the next season starting?

While 343’s initial plan was for Season 3 to begin in November 2022, the game’s major delays pushed back all content months behind this schedule. At the time of writing, the official start date for Season 3 is March 7, 2023 and will run until June 27, 2023.

Halo Infinite’s third season will be called Echoes Within and – similarly to Season 2 – will include a whole new Battle Pass and content that will focus on the theme and concept of the season.

Halo Infinite Season 3 map leaks

With any new season of Halo, players can typically expect new maps to arrive alongside the new Battle Pass and extra content. And while 343 is yet to reveal what these new maps could look like, there are leaks circulating on Reddit that tease three new locations for players to dive into.

The three maps leaked include a desert location, a high altitude UNSC-looking base, and then the third looks to be a similar location to those found in Infinite multiplayer. We’ll be sure to update this section if and when these new maps are confirmed by the dev team.

Halo Infinite new weapons & gadgets coming in Season 3 

One thing we know for sure is that season 3 will introduce a brand new weapon to Halo Infinite. The gun is called the M392 Bandit and is a similar style weapon to the DMR. Given that the DMR is not featured in Infinite, it is likely the Bandit will take on the role of being a more high-velocity style rifle in comparison to the Battle Rifle.

As well as this new gun, it has also been revealed that a new gadget will be brought in for season 3 in the form of a Shroud Screen. This feature will allow players to hide in a cloud of smoke that will make them disappear from the in-game radar even when firing off weapons.
