Even though Halo Infinite is in Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft and 343 Industries still want to make some money from the shooter. That’s why there are in-game items and they’re getting cheaper now.
The reason for this is probably not that the studios made enough money with Halo Infinite, but rather that the prices are still deterring some potential buyers. We’ve been following the discussions surrounding the in-game shop and microtransactions closely and are now planning various price reductions for cosmetic items across the board, starting this week.
As early as Tuesday there should be some changes, not only in the prices, but also in the composition of the packages. This should make the bundles more valuable, and some items should no longer be offered in bundles in the future. We want to try a few more things in this regard over the course of the season and use the feedback for future improvements.
Exactly what changes will be made remains to be seen. At least it is positive that 343 and Microsoft want to adjust the somewhat inconsistent pricing.
