Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries has revealed that Master Chief's alien-slaying sequel will not feature 'real-money loot boxes.'

We previously reported that the first-person shooter will feature microtransactions of some description, though at the time it wasn't known how these would be implemented. While further details are under wraps, we at least now have confirmation paid-for loot boxes won't be part of the equation. 

The news will likely come as a relief to people who were miffed at Halo 5: Guardians, which allowed players to shell out real money on REQ Packs. 

343 Industries hasn't really shared many details on Halo Infinite since its E3 announcement, although we do know it's basically Halo 6 and runs on a brand new game engine. It also probably won't feature a battle royale mode.

Halo Infinite is currently in development for PC and Xbox One and is without a release date.
