We're getting small nuggets of Halo Infinite news fairly regularly these days, with the most recent announcement being that the game will support cross-play and cross-progression when it launches later this year.
The news was announced in a recent Xbox Wire post, which looked at the company's focus on PC gaming. It was here that it was revealed no matter if you're playing on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, or PC, you'll be able to play with your friends on other platforms, as well as continue your multiplayer progression between them all.
"We know many of you play across more than just your PC, including on Xbox and mobile. That’s why we’re excited to announce Halo Infinite will support multiplayer cross-play and cross-progression when it releases later this year. That means if you’re playing on PC, you can play with your friends on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. It also means that your multiplayer customization and progress will follow you across all platforms."
Not only that, but Xbox is said to have been working closely with the PC community to ensure Halo Infinite delivers a "premier PC experience" when it launches. This includes features such as super ultra wide screen support and an assortment of graphical options to customise.
"We have been working closely with the PC community to ensure that Halo Infinite offers a premier PC experience, including highly desired features such as support for ultrawide and super ultrawide screens, triple keybinds, a wide variety of advanced graphics options and more. We want to make sure that Halo is serving the PC community."
Halo Infinite is sounding as though its shaping up to be the definitive Halo experience. With a lengthy delay on the game, we're hoping this ensures a supremely polished experience. The best news is knowing that players won't be segregated between platforms, meaning all Xbox players can come together to enjoy the game's multiplayer.
