“We’re also committed to a great split-screen co-op experience on all Xbox consoles, from the original Xbox One to Xbox One Series X — and the campaign’s wide-open, non-linear sections present some of the big split-screen challenges that have taken us further. Time to solve it,” posted on road aura explains.
“All of this means that we won’t be able to ship the campaign network co-op on May 3, at the start of Season 2. But we’re still aiming to bring the campaign network co-op later in Season 2, and we’ll be sharing the release date for that and for the split-screen co-op as quickly as possible.”
