"Matchmaking updates go live every Monday, and potential playlists for the month of February include both FFA and a new and improved version of Team Snipers," the studio said in a post on Halo Waypoint.

"Late February will also bring both a Title Update and the Majestic Map Pack (which includes two small maps and one medium-sized map) to Halo 4 as well. Expect more information on all of those things next month."

Additionally, 343 detailed three upcoming Spartan Ops missions, which are "tentatively" planned for release as follows:

  • Week of 1/21
    Spartan Ops Episode 6: Five new missions and an accompanying new CG cinematic.
    "Forge Test" playlist (name not final): A rotational hopper featuring small Forge maps such as Relay. Help us test these maps by providing feedback and reporting bugs that will assist us in getting them ready for Matchmaking!
    Specializations: Pioneer and Pathfinder Specializations unlocked for all players.
  • Week of 1/28
    Spartan Ops Episode 7: Five new missions and an accompanying new CG cinematic.
    Grifball playlist: A rotational hopper featuring everybody's favorite virtual sport. Catch the disease!
    Specializations: Engineer and Stalker Specializations unlocked for all players.
  • Week of 2/4
    Spartan Ops Episode 8: Five new missions and an accompanying new CG cinematic.
    Team Doubles playlist: A rotational hopper for those of you that like action of the 2 vs 2 variety.
    Specializations: Rogue and Tracker Specializations unlocked for all players.

Specifically, the Majestic map pack is expected to launch on February 25, and to be followed by the Castle map pack on April 1. Descriptions of each can be found in this Halo 4 DLC round-up.
