343 Industries say changes are coming to Halo Infinite multiplayer’s cosmetic shop following feedback from fans.
The news came by way of the developer’s Head of Design Jerry Hook. He revealed over the weekend “We’ve been monitoring the discussions on the Shop, bundles and pricing closely since launch. Using data and community feedback, we’re going to begin rolling out changes to how we package and price items in Halo Infinite – and it all starts next week.”
Hook would elaborate on the studio’s plans later in the thread. “Starting Tuesday, the Shop experience will vary week-to-week. We are focused on reducing the pricing across the board, providing strong values in our bundles, starting to put individual items outside of bundles and more.” Later, Hook would also promise that the team will be “trying new things” for the remainder of the season too. Hook added that 343 would continue to welcome feedback during the process.
Halo Infinite cosmetic rewards have been something of a sticking point for multiplayer fans. Challenges and the game’s battle pass to earn free ones were tweaked following fan complaints. There’s been three events to own specially-themed ones so far since launch, including the Fracture: Tenrai event that’s had two iterations at the time of writing.
Next week, the game will be holding a Cyber Showdown event. You can check out a video for that underneath the tweet. Halo Infinite multiplayer is free-to-play and available now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
