In a new Xbox Wire post detailing its commitment to PC gaming for 2021 and beyond, Microsoft revealed some new details on Halo Infinite. It confirmed multiplayer cross-play and cross-progression support, allowing PC players to play with/against others on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. Furthermore, your multiplayer progress can be carried over between all three platforms. Multiplayer was previously confirmed to be free-to-play.
That isn’t all though. The PC version will include PC-exclusive features like ultrawide and super ultrawide screen support and triple keybinds. There will also be a “wide variety” of advanced graphics options. “We want to make sure that Halo is serving the PC community,” said Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty.
Microsoft also spoke briefly about Halo: The Master Chief Collection which released for PC in 2019 and is available for Xbox Game Pass subscribers on the platform. It’s had over 10 million players since then “with the vast majority of them being brand new to the franchise.” Season 7: Raven kicked off earlier this month, adding new techsuit customization options, a new map for Halo 3 and various armor permutations.
As for Halo Infinite, it’s currently slated to release in Fall 2021 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
