343 Industries has confirmed that a controversial multiplayer feature is present in Halo Infinite. The last couple of years, one of the biggest talking points in games like Fortnite, Duty calls, Apex Legends, and more has been skill-based matchmaking, also known as SBMM. SBMM has been around for a long time, but in recent years it has come under the microscope and been the target of criticism as it has evolved and becomes more and more crucial to the experience of games it is implemented in. And as you expect, it is in Halo Infinite.
For those who do not know: Skill-based matchmaking is a matchmaking system that is more often or not implemented in two ways. The first and more prominent way is also the more controversial way, and that is to fill a lobby full of evenly skilled players. The second implementation is usually in team-based multiplayer, and it creates two balanced teams by calculating the skills of each team.
For now, it remains to be seen how Halo Infinite will use SBMM and how aggressive 343 Industries will be with the toolkit, but as you would expect, there are shared fans.
“With new training options, sparring bots, skill-based matchmaking and improved systems that provide better communication of key information to players during a match, we are happy to welcome Spartans at all skill levels and help you fight to the top every season. , “in 343 Industries.
Currently, Halo Infinite is still scheduled to release this holiday. Based on what I have heard, a final date has not been decided yet, but the game will make this window. If this is the case, we should see and hear much more about the game soon, which means we should hear more about SBMM in the coming months.
