Continuing the series of revelations referring to Infinite Halo, Jerry Hook, head of design at 343 Industries, revealed in a post on Twitter that the game’s campaign will allow two players to share the screen locally and four people to do so cooperatively online.
Hey everyone I saw some reports of campaign supporting 4 player Split screen for campaign and just want to correct. Halo Infinite will be supporting 2 player split screen and 4 player online co-op for campaign. Sorry about the confusion. #haloinfinte

Associated with this, it was also revealed that the producer is treating the new game as a kind of love letter to fans of the series, including here the same feeling that each one had when venturing into Halo: Combat Evolved for the first time. Another detail is the fact that the team started working on the new title thinking of it as a kind of spiritual reboot for the series.
“We really started working on this game with the concept that it was a spiritual reboot. This idea was something really like part of us thinking about what we learned from Halo 4 and Halo 5 – and looking at the entire history of the franchise – to take the best and most iconic Halo moments and bring them to today’s gamers,” commented Chris Lee, head of 343 Industries.
Finally, the team also commented that this is the most ambitious game ever made for the series – and we’ll have a chance to see it later this year, whether on Xbox One, Xbox Series X or PC at a date to be announced by Microsoft.
