Halo: The Master Chief Collection will bring 120 FPS gameplay to Xbox Series X and S

Because Microsoft is putting some hardcore focus on The Master Chief Collection now (including bringing the package to PC), it stood to reason that the company might also update things for the next generation. Sure enough, it is.

Before Xbox Game Pass existed, the best deal in gaming was arguably Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The compilation packs Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: OSDT, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4 into one beautiful bundle. Six Halo games. That’s pretty good, right?

Because Microsoft is putting some hardcore focus on The Master Chief Collection now (including bringing the package to PC), it stood to reason that the company might also update things for the next generation. Sure enough, a tweet today from Microsoft confirmed that a significant upgrade is coming to Halo: The Master Chief Collection next month.

It was a tremendous joy to play all of these Halo titles at 60 frames-per-second when they arrived on Xbox One. The idea that Microsoft is bumping them all up — multiplayer and campaign — to 120 FPS is simply bonkers. There’s no other way to put it.

What’s equally as impressive is the claim that split-screen will go “up to 4K on Series X.” Games with split-screen modes usually have to dial down resolution. While it sounds like Microsoft is leaving itself some wiggle room here (perhaps just two-player split-screen will hit 4K and nothing else), the promise of increased resolution will sure make sharing a single screen with someone a little bit easier.

As the tweet states, these upgrades will be coming to Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Nov. 17. Wait, isn’t that the release date for Cyberpunk 2077? Yes it is. Bold move by Microsoft there. Still, I’m really looking forward to seeing MCC shine at those crazy high frame rates next month. Perhaps I’ll even put Cyberpunk down for a bit and play a few matches of Team Slayer.
