PC specs and requirements - Halo Infinite

Find out if your PC has what it takes to battle it out in Halo Infinite with our guide to the minimum requirements and specs.


This past week was the 20th anniversary of the original Halo: Combat Evolved released for the Xbox console back in 2001 and the birth of the Xbox ecosystem. In order to celebrate the milestone, Microsoft and the team at 343 Industries gave series fans a big gift in the form of launching the multiplayer portion of Halo Infinite nearly a month ahead of the game’s scheduled December release date. Available for the Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC, Halo Infinite is launching on more platforms than any Halo title that has come before it.

The PC version of Halo Infinite Multiplayer is available through the Windows Store, Xbox Game Pass, and Steam. All PC versions of the game use the Xbox Live network for matchmaking and partying up with your friends. The team at 343 Industries has been hard at work over the last couple of years building Halo Infinite for PC players from scratch using knowledge gleaned from the time they spent on the Master Chief Collection port. Halo Infinite features all the features and customization options one would expect from a top-shelf PC port, including a wide range of graphics settings that allow players to dial in that perfect balance between visual fidelity and performance.

In order to determine if your current PC (or one you may be buying or building) is up to the task of running Master Chief’s latest romp, we have prepared this handy guide to the Halo Infinite Multiplayer minimum PC requirements and specifications.
