When Does Forge Release for Halo: Reach?

343 Industries, the developers behind Halo 4 and Halo 5, has gone out of its way to bring Halo: Reach to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, granting players an opportunity to play the game on the Xbox One and PC. While it’s busy working on several of the new gameplay aspects and online balances, it did not release Forge or the Theater mode when Halo: Reach launched.

Unfortunately, 343 Industries does not have a direct timeframe for when this creative mode is coming to the game. When it does become available, you will have access to creating customized maps and gameplay modes for you and your friends to play on and do creative things.

Forge mode had been a considerable success when it first released to Halo 3 back in 2007. Any map changed in Forge was renamed a map variant, detailing a player had done in to make tweaks to the original design released by the developers. You could change where players spawn in, what weapons were available, vehicles, and the map’s layout. You had a great deal of creative freedom.

When Forge does release to Halo: Reach for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, 343 Industries will make a broad announcement about it. Right now, it’s focused on the smooth launch of the game to ensure the visual changes and online experience remain a high priority.

While you can’t play Forge right now, you can make sure to jump into Halo: Reach‘s multiplayer landscape to try out the standard gameplay modes and work your way through the current Season. You also have the chance to try out the Invasion mode, pitting you against six other players in a competitive match.
