Following a leak, 343 Industries has confirmed that Halo Infinite's multiplayer will be free-to-play and will support 120fps on Xbox Series X. Halo's Twitter shared the news, saying "Halo is for everyone. We can confirm #HaloInfinite multiplayer will be free-to-play and will support 120FPS on Xbox Series X. More details will be shared later!" Earlier today, Smyths Toys leaked the news in its listing for Xbox Series X, highlighting the free-to-play news, 120 FPS, and "greatly reduced load times." While we have yet to learn much more about Halo Infinite's multiplayer, we did learn much more about its campaign at the Xbox Games Showcase, where 343 confirmed it will be running at a locked 60 FPS. Halo Infinite will also be more of a platform than a standalone entry, and this move to free-to-play only reinforces that this is what Halo will look like for the foreseeable future.
