Halo Infinite’s multiplayer feature has only been available for a few hours, yet it’s already smashing records on Steam for an Xbox Game Studios title. As part of the series’ and Xbox line of consoles’ 20th anniversary festivities, Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode is now accessible on Xbox Game Pass and PC.

The multiplayer mode in Halo Infinite is completely free to play. The single-player campaign feature will be included in the final edition of the game, which will be published on December 8. At debut, Halo Infinite will lack a co-op campaign and a Forge mode, although both are likely to be added later. Halo Infinite has already been delayed, pushing it out of the Xbox Series X/S launch window, and it’s probable that the developers are working on the game’s two most crucial components in order to meet its holiday 2021 release date.
Microsoft may have thought that the sudden release of Halo Infinite multiplayer would shock the gaming world. But, unfortunately, the information was exposed too soon. On the plus side, the leaks encouraged many fans to sit at their computers during the Xbox show’s 20th anniversary, waiting for the actual announcement. As a result, the multiplayer material was played by an unparalleled amount of individuals at launch. Halo Infinite has surpassed the concurrent player number for an Xbox Game Studios title on Steam.
Within three hours of its release, Halo Infinite surpassed Halo: The Master Chief Collection and the recent debut of Forza Horizon 5, with 162k concurrent users. These figures just represent Steam users; there are also Xbox users to consider, as well as individuals who play games on PC without using Steam, so it’s unknown how the numbers would break down across all platforms.
Halo Infinite has only been out for a few hours, but the anticipation for its release (despite the fact that it was supposed to be a surprise) was palpable. The launch leak for Halo Infinite may have even aided the game’s debut. Fans of the FPS genre still appreciate the release of a new Halo game, and Halo Infinite might be the major must-have Christmas title that the Xbox Series X/S was intended to be in 2020.
The game will launch on December 8, 2021.
