Cross-play will be supported.
While we’re still disappointed that the Halo Infinite was delayed and wasn’t part of the launch lineup for the Xbox Series X|S, we’re still glad that Microsoft is taking time to polish the game and hopefully deliver the best Halo experience fans have been waiting for.
In line with this, Microsoft announced a bunch of new features that are coming to Halo Infinite that will surely get fans excited. In a post on Xbox Wire, Microsoft confirmed that customisations and game progress will be accessible on all platforms, meaning that any progress that you make on the Xbox will continue on the PC should you choose to play it there.
Microsoft’s aim here is clearly to unite gamers through games and not limit them to one device. This is also evident with the company’s focus on its subscription service that includes Game Pass, dubbed as the Netflix for games, which works across its Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S lineup as well as the PC.
This also comes after the announcement that Halo Infinite’s multiplayer will be free-to-play, meaning that you don’t need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to be able to play online.
Halo Infinite’s first teaser gained mixed reactions from gamers, citing that the visuals did not feel next-gen. While Developer 343 explained that the footage wasn’t final, the game was eventually delayed to this year, though a final release date is not available at the moment.
