343 asked Halo fans to submit their questions on Twitter. The studio has collected them in an FAQ posted on Halo Waypoint, with answers provided by Forge lead developer Michael “Forge Lord” Schorr. 343 also provided a set of four YouTube tutorials covering basic concepts like building, scripting and bots, lighting and audio, and file sharing. Moreover, the Waypoint post clarified that while the studio considers Infinite HaloForge mode is a beta, it launches with “huge features” and will be available to all players. Forge, and the player’s forge creations, will also be here to stay once 343 Industries adds Forge to Infinite Halo next week.

However, the custom game browser will not arrive until Infinite HaloSeason 3 of will launch on March 7. Until then, players can find and mark Custom Modes through the Content Browser.

The studio is also open to possibly integrating some of Infinite Haloforge cards in the Halo Championship Seriesas he did with some Halo 5 Forge cards. However, this can only happen after 343 Industries has had the opportunity to assess Infinitemaps created by players and coordinate them with their creators.
