With Age of Empires IV, a PC-exclusive strategy heavyweight will appear in the foreseeable future – and Halo Infinite will also continue to be planned for the arithmetic servant in a form optimized for the PC.
With regard to Halo Infinite in particular, the first PC features were also confirmed in the course of the announcement. The PC version will therefore offer cross-play and cross-progression on the PC with the console versions; Those who gamble on the PC will also be able to gamble with friends on Xbox One or Xbox Series X / S. Progress can be adopted across the platforms. In addition, Halo Infinite on the PC will offer ultrawide and super ultrawide display support, triple keyboard layout, a variety of additional graphics options and more.
