Expected for the end of the year, Halo Infinite will be compatible with crossplay and cross-progression. This means that PC and Xbox Series X players will be able to come together to play in multiplayer, and that it will be possible to resume your game on any of the two platforms.
Announced as the flagship game of the Xbox Series X, Halo Infinite is (long) overdue. The game was originally slated for console release, but was eventually delayed for more than a year, the time needed to better match the vision of the players. Its supposedly definitive launch is now scheduled for the end of 2021 and, as the deadline approaches, Microsoft is becoming less stingy with information.
The firm announced today that the game will be compatible with crossplay and cross-progression. In other words, this means on the one hand that PC and Xbox Series X players will be able to carry out the campaign together of the title. On the other hand, it means that their backups will be synchronized between the two platforms. It will therefore be possible to resume at the same point on both, without having to make a transfer. Note that this support also concerns multiplayer data.

This is very good news for gamers, who will also benefit from gmultiplayer mode rollback, all in 120 FPS on Xbox Series X. Halo has always been a community-focused series, being Xbox’s first major multiplayer hit, and this new installment seems to respect that heritage. PC gamers, on the other hand, will be entitled to multiple customization options, ranging from graphics to in-game controls.

Now all you have to do is wait for more information from Microsoft. The exact release date is still unknown, and the beta of the game is expected at the turn by the players after a first gameplay trailer that failed to convince. It’s been over a year since 343 Industries has been hiding images of Halo Infinite, and the improvements made are still a mystery.
