343 Industries has confirmed that Halo Infinite’s campaign will support 2-player local split screen, and up to 4 players online.
Jerry Hook, head of design at 343 Industries, took to Twitter to clarify that, while Halo Infinite will support 4-player split screen online, those playing locally will only be able to do so with one other person.
This news follows Halo Infinite’s reveal at the Xbox Games Showcase, where fans of the franchise that began in 2001 got their first look at the newest campaign.
This newest entry will make Halo open world, with upgrades to discover and new weapons to find. Furthermore, Halo Infinite will be the platform for new Halo experiences for the foreseeable future, so don’t expect a Halo Infinite 2/Halo 7 in the near future.
Halo Infinite takes place after the ending of Halo 5, with a rampant Cortana missing and Master Chief adrift in space. For those new to the series, Halo Infinite is meant to be a great starting point for new fans, but those who know the Halo lore will be rewarded.
Halo Infinite led the Xbox Game Showcase that also revealed a new Fable, State of Decay 3, Forza Motorsport, Obsidian’s Avowed, and much more.
