Like it or not, microtransactions are part of the current gaming. This, since in most cases they are the model of monetization that allows games to exist as a service that gives us constant content that keeps us hooked for a long time. This is why it is unlikely that you will be surprised to learn that Halo Infinite will have microtransactions.
We know this because 343 Industries is looking for an online experience design manager to join the Halo development team. The vacancy indicates that whoever occupies the position will have to supervise several facets of the game and its implementation. One of them will be microtransactions and their integration with the business plan for the game.
According to reports, the presence of microtransactions in Halo Infinite is no surprise. After all, it has been a model that has proven to be very profitable in Halo 5: Guardians, in addition to its existence prevents the community fragments with the arrival of DLC. In addition, for some time there were already murmurs that pointed to Infinite will follow a game model as a service and this seems to confirm it.
Another detail that caught our attention is that 343 Industries also wants to hire a software development engineer to join the Halo team. Whoever is chosen will be responsible for working on a “PC client anti-cheat and security features for Halo Infinite”. This means that the company does not take lightly the return of the franchise to the PC and is already working on measures that allow its multiplayer to be fair and fun.
In other news, 343 Industries confirmed that Halo Infinite should be considered as Halo 6 even though the number is absent from the name. On the other hand, Microsoft has not yet decided if it will be a title that will be part of the Play Anywhere program. To finish, we tell you that 343 Industries ruled out that it will have a Battle Royale mode.
Halo Infinite was announced at E3 2018 and its campaign is expected to arrive sometime in 2019.
