343 Industries has treated Halo 4's "Spartan Ops" like a television show, right down to a mid-season hiatus. They've been rerunning episodes in the off-time to give new players a chance to catch up. That break ends next week, though, which will begin a new set of five episodes to finish out the first season. Episode 6 will provide you with more co-op action on January 21.

The five episodes will last through February 24, when 343 will presumably take another break. The company hasn't confirmed or given a time frame a second season for Spartan Ops, but it stands to reason that one will be coming along eventually. The question is whether the new episodes will remain free or if they'll start becoming paid DLC.

If it keeps hewing this close to the TV model, though, we fully expect surprise weddings and wacky childbirth scenes to happen sometime around sweeps week. Check out the teaser trailer below.

      I have completed the single player campaign for Halo 4 and have seen the cg cinematics for spartan ops. Even though I haven't actually played SO, I'm way more into the story for SO than I was for the single player. Maybe it's just me but all the background stuff was always more interesting to me than the story of Master Chief. Really enjoying the all too brief interactions between the different characters and how it's going to turn out.

      Anyone else in the same boat?

        SO's gameplay is absolutely atrocious though. At this point, I'd rather they just release a short movie and be done with it.

          yeah, its the episodes that make it good. the actual gameplay is lackluster. at launch the it'd pause and lag all over and while its mostly fixed, they all feel like amateur hour in forge.
