We now have a concrete release schedule for Halo 4 in January, including matchmaking and Spartan Ops updates
The blog goes on to read…
“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. 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.”
