Microsoft confirms in tweet that Halo Infinite multiplayer will be free-to-play and support 120FPS on Xbox Series X
Halo Infinite is an upcoming first-person shooter game developed by 343 Industries and published by Xbox Game Studios for Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. It is planned as a launch game for Xbox Series X in late 2020, the sixth main entry of the Halo series, and the fourteenth game overall. It continues the story of the Master Chief as the third chapter of the “Reclaimer Saga”, following Halo 5: Guardians (2015).
According to Microsoft, Master Chief returns in Halo Infinite with “his greatest adventure yet to save humanity”. The storyline of Halo Infinite will be “much more human”, with the Master Chief playing a more central role than in Halo 5: Guardians.
Whereas the company also confirmed in a tweet that the upcoming Halo Infinite multiplayer will be free-to-play and support 120FPS. “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!” Halo tweeted

Halo Infinite will probably be one of the top games that could help Microsoft sell the Xbox Series X video game console. But Microsoft has also said such games will likely be available on the current console, the Xbox One, and the Windows PC as well. In that sense, players won’t be forced to buy a new console just to play Halo Infinite.
Microsoft acquired Bungie, the original developer of Halo, in 2000 as it was preparing the 2001 launch of the original Xbox game console. The game was a huge hit and helped Microsoft snag the No. 2 spot in the game console business. Bungie spun out of Microsoft in 2007 and went its own way with the Destiny franchise. But Microsoft kept part of the team, dubbed 343 Industries, and continued to make more games in the Halo series.
