Halo Infinite

343 Industries’ Halo Infinite has received a good amount of attention recently regarding a job listing for an Online Experience Design Director. Though first posted in June, the listing only recently gained traction thanks to its mention of microtransactions.

Though the developer has reassured fans that there will not be real-money loot boxes in the experience, that hasn’t stopped many from expecting the worst. To that end, community manager Brian Jarrad took to Twitter to address one fan’s worries over specific aspects of the listing.

He stated, “I know there’s very little real info to go on thus far, but I wouldn’t worry over a job description. All pretty standard stuff in the industry, doesn’t mean it’ll result in something bad.” While that doesn’t necessarily give us an idea of what to expect, 343 Industries does have experience with implementing microtransactions into titles like Halo 5: Guardians.

While that system had REQ cards and cosmetics tied behind card packs that could be purchased with real money, there were plenty of ways to earn them in-game. Furthermore, the developer brought a boat-load of free content and features to the game in return.

What are your thoughts on Halo Infinite having microtransactions, even if they’re cosmetic? Let us know in the comments below.
