Microsoft’s next console generation will be launching right around the corner, and the company is still growing its list of enhanced exclusives for the Xbox Series X and Series S. Now we know for sure that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be included within that list, supporting 120 FPS and up to 4K.
The collection will be getting this update on November 17th, a week after the launch of both consoles. It will optimize the entire catalog of classics to 120 FPS (for both campaign and multiplayer) as well as up to 4K support and additional split screen optimizations on the Xbox Series X. However, the Microsoft tweet doesn’t mention the capabilities of the Series S versions. Of course, the update will be free, as the collection is included with Microsoft’s Smart Delivery program. The game is also on Xbox Game Pass for console and PC, as well as Xbox Game Streaming on Android.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection consists of the original Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach and Halo 4. It doesn’t include Halo 5: Guardians, and Microsoft has stated it won’t be added in the future.
Although the delay of Halo Infinite might still have some fans sour, this does lessen he blow. Halo Infinite has no specific release date, but has been slated for a vague 2021 launch window.
