While the Halo campaigns have traditionally launched with a cooperative mode, Infinite will not have one at launch.

The devs have announced that getting co-op into the game is still a priority, but that the tentative Early 2022 release date from before is being adjusted.

As of now, the co-op campaign feature is expected to arrive at the end of Season 2, which is scheduled to conclude in May.
