On November 17, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will become fully optimized on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, and will feature 120FPS in Campaign and Multiplayer, Split-screen improvements, up to 4K on Series X, and more.
Announced by Xbox on Twitter, this update will be available for free to existing owners or those who are subscribed to Xbox Game Pass.
Aaron Greenberg, GM of Xbox Games Marketing at Microsoft, has also confirmed that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will also support “cross-gen play & adjustable FOV.”
These updates are another part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s future that will also include crossplay between Xbox One and PC, a custom game browser, PC fileshare, per game graphics and audio options, mouse and keyboard support on Xbox One, and more.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection was released in 2014, and while it had a few issues at launch, it has been continuously supported and improved. In our re-review in 2019, we said, “overcoming its deserved reputation after a notorious launch, today the Halo Master Chief Collection is a polished, super-deluxe package of content that successfully links three generations of amazing Halo games together in a way that feels like it was made by and for people who care deeply about this legendary shooter franchise.”
So, while Halo Infinite may have been delayed to 2021, Halo fans will still be able to have a next-gen experience with Master Chief until we are all able to go on his next adventure, which will also feature 120FPS in its free-to-play multiplayer.
