In response to a bit of confusion about how split screen would work in Halo Infinite’s campaign, 343’s head of design took to Twitter (via IGN) and confirmed that the upcoming game would support local co-op split screen for two players and online split screen for up to four players.
Note that this only applies to the campaign mode and not any of Halo Infinite’s dedicated multiplayer modes of which very little is known. Details on Halo Infinite’s non-campaign multiplayer is expected to be revealed in a future live stream similar to the last week’s Xbox Showcase.
In other Halo news, the Halo Infinite product listing has gone live on the Microsoft Store and, while the game can’t be pre-ordered just yet, it does list a lot of the game’s important information all in one place which many should find genuinely useful, especially casual gamers.
