Halo Infinite, the sequel to the slightly disappointing Halo 5, has seen a somewhat turbulent development period, with a lackluster reception to last year’s preview, a release date delay to 2021, and the departure of several key staff members. The Microsoft and Bethesda Games Showcase recently provided a welcome update on the game, which is now set to arrive in two parts this holiday season.

This almost happened in the MCC

Older Halo Games Could Someday Get 4 Player Co-Op

One of the consistent things every Halo game has had is co-op play. And while it simply started as clones of Master Chief running around in 2 player co-op Halo, the game progressed to integrate it into the story with Halo 2 as the Chief and Arbiter were the focus of that campaign. And with four player co-op being added in Halo 3,  it changed the benchmark for the series.

Halo: Reach Will Be Added to Master Chief Collection on December 3

Back in March, we reported that Halo: Reach would be added to the Halo: The Master Chief Collection sometime this year. With just a few weeks left, 343 Industries is fulfilling that promise and Halo: Reach will arrive on the PC and Xbox One on December 3, 2019.

Halo 5 Will Not Have Split-Screen Added

In a recent video promotion for the new all-digital Xbox One S, Microsoft showed off a sliver of split-screen gameplay for Halo 5, as the video’s audio states “They were playing Halo in conference room 4-B,” despite the title not supporting that particular feature. After this story broke, Community Manager Brian Jarrard of 343 Studios took to Twitter and wiped up the speculation in a tweet saying; “Sorry to disappoint but no, splitscreen isn’t being added to Halo 5. The footage in question looks to be a little bit of good old fashioned creative liberty in the editing bay.”
