The countdown to a new Halo game is coming to an end and the community’s excitement continues to grow. Here’s everything you need to know about Halo Infinite cross-play and cross-progression.
343 Studio’s newest installment in the Halo franchise is arriving with great fanfare and players are ready to don that Spartan armor once more. There have been some questions about Halo Infinite’s crossplay and cross-progression features though.
We know that the game will support cross-saving features meaning that players can jump on any of their linked accounts and retain whatever progress they’ve made, but can you play with your friends who are on different platforms?
Is Halo Infinite Cross-Play on Xbox & PC?
Halo Infinite will support cross-play between all platforms. This means if you’re playing on PC, you’ll still be able to party up with your friends who are playing on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
While this will surely be a smash for casual players who just want to hop into some games with their friends, it is causing quite a worry in the professional scene where the debate about the competitive viability of cross-play continues to rage.
For those who aren’t worried about that, there’s more good news about the game’s cross-connectivity.
How Cross-Progression works
According to an update from Matt Booty, the head of Xbox Games Studios, Halo Infinite will have cross-progression enabled at launch.
While we don’t know if campaign progress will carry over between platforms, your multiplayer customization and progression will travel with you wherever you choose to play. This is especially huge seeing as the game’s multiplayer will be free-to-play.
That’s all there is to know about cross-play and cross-progression. The industry has started turning a corner in the world of cross-play and Infinite represents a huge step toward keeping that dream alive.
