Halo: The Master Chief Collection to get Xbox Series S/X upgrade

Halo Infinite being split into parts is possible

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is getting a next-gen port too. Xbox has announced that anthology bundle Halo: The Master Chief Collection will have improved technical specs and more when it launches on the new hardware. That launch is planned the week following the debut of the new consoles.

Announcing the news via Twitter, the official account for the brand has announced a variety of technical details. It turns out that the goal here is to deliver a truly PC-like experience. There will be 4K support on some hardware, as well as improve framerates. The 120 FPS mark will apply for both singleplayer can multiplayer across all modes. The 120 FPS mark will also apply to both S and X consoles. So no matter the hardware, you’re getting an upgrade.

It also seems as though the port will support Smart Delivery on the new hardware, meaning that existing owners can get a free upgrade to the new version.  The split-screen functionality on all versions will still be there as well. That split-screen mode will be scaled down to 1080p on the weaker console, with 4K on Series X being the ideal target for this gameplay style.

The next-gen optimized port of Halo: The Master Chief Collection comes to Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X from November 17.

Though it’s not all potentially good news for Halo fans. Halo Infinite‘s reveal and subsequent delay already had a problem for the future of the franchise. Now we’re hearing a potential rumor that the new game could be split into multiple titles. It’s worth pointing out that the rumor is just one potential option that 343 Industries is considering with the next game, not something set in stone.
