By Dave Cook, Monday, 13 May 2013 10:55 GMT

Halo 4 developer 343 Industries has released details of its next title update, which will add a new Forge Island playlist to multiplayer, and has called on players to submit their own creations for its consideration.

OXM reports – via the Halo Bulletin – that the new update will drop May 20, and that the Forge Island playlist will be live for a limited time only. The 343 post added, “If you’d like to submit your creations (or those of a friend) for consideration, be sure to post in the Community Cartographer’s Thread in the proper format.

“During the remainder of this week and over the weekend, the Matchmaking Systems Team will be working alongside the Community Cartographers to select the final candidates, which will be announced in next week’s Bulletin, along with the full details of the next Matchmaking Playlist Update.”

Meanwhile, the studio is still hard at work on a major weapon re-balancing update that will be livestreamed soon to get feedback from the community. Check out what the patch involves and details of the stream here.

The team will also host a public event on June 3, which will see 343 staffers facing off against the community.
