Sounds like Halo Infinite will have microtransactions

Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries has indicated via a job listing that the upcoming first-person shooter will feature microtransactions.

The developer has posted up an opening for an Online Experience Design Director, which will see the candidate 'design and deliver AAA social experience that fosters community,' in addition to providing a 'AAA player investment experience' that fuels gamers to 'express their passion' for the series via microtransactions.

While it didn't go into any further detail about what sort of microtransactions will be present, it sounds a lot like they'll be cosmetic-based. Hopefully this is the case, as the last thing a Halo game needs is gameplay-affecting loot boxes.

Requirements for the job include a 'comprehensive understanding' of psychology in regards to what keeps players coming back to a game, and labels Halo Infinite as a 'live service' title.

Elsewhere, a new job listing reveals that anti-cheat measures will be put in place for Halo Infinite on PC, with a Senior Software Development Engineer requiring the successful candidate to work on 'PC client anti-cheat and security features' for Master Chief's latest outing.

Halo Infinite has yet to attract a release date, though it's being powered by a brand new game engine.

343 Industries has previously revealed that the game won't feature a battle royale mode, and has confirmed that, just in case there were any doubts, Infinite is basically Halo 6.
