Halo Infinite

When asked to elaborate, Grubb said in another tweet that "Xbox Live Gold is going away and playing online multiplayer will be free".

Why are they removing the subs?

343 noted during the Microsoft showcase that Halo Infinite will be "the biggest and most ambitious Halo game ever imagined", with the Halo Ring being double the size of the last two Halo releases combined. As The Verge reports, a webpage on the Irish version of Smyths - a popular toy and video game retailer in the United Kingdom - momentarily referenced a "groundbreaking free-to-play multiplayer experience" in relation to Halo Infinite.

The Halo Twitter account has now confirmed that Halo Infinite will indeed have free-to-play multiplayer and will support 120FPS on Xbox Series X.

Yesterday, reports started coming out that Halo Infinite would have free-to-play multiplayer and support 120FPS on Xbox Series X, after a retailer listed both facts on its product listing. The details have now been pulled, but were captured by Google's caching and The Verge. The trailer had a message indicating that Xbox Live Gold will be required to play CrossfireX, as you can see in the screenshot below. Games With Gold's offerings have been rather lacklustre lately, while PlayStation Plus has been handing out triple-A games, Gold has been been handing out lower tier games. Xbox Live Gold not only provides access to multiplayer on Xbox consoles, but it also includes four free games every month plus access to weekly "Deals with Gold" for Xbox One and Xbox 360 games.
