Of course, this means any­one play­ing Halo Infi­nite can play togeth­er no mat­ter what plat­form they are on, whether that is a Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, or PC.

This should­n’t be a sur­prise, since Microsoft has been push­ing cross-play and cross-pro­gres­sion for sev­er­al years. How­ev­er, this is a big deal for Halo Infi­nite, as the fran­chise has­n’t released a main entry on PC since Halo 2. 

Ultrawide Monitor Support

Microsoft stat­ed they’re “work­ing close­ly” with PC experts to make sure Halo Infi­nite is a “pre­mier PC expe­ri­ence.” That being said, Halo Infi­nite on PC will include the fol­low­ing features:

  • Sup­port for ultra­w­ide and super ultra­w­ide screens
  • Triple key­binds
  • A “wide vari­ety” of graph­ics options “and more”

Microsoft added it wants to “make sure that Halo is serv­ing the PC community.”
