343 Industries will abandon plans to introduce a premium currency for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. More than two decades after its launch, the Halo the franchise continues to draw crowds, whether this is its latest entry Infinite Halo or some of his old titles on the Halo: The Master Chief Collection. As 343 looks to explore ideas to keep gamers interested in its series of titles, it now looks like the company is backtracking on some of those ideas.

In June, the developers announced that they were considering adding a premium currency or rather purchasable Spartan Points to Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The idea was that it could offer a convenient way for casual gamers to obtain items from a collection of over 1,000. Purchasable Spartan Points would essentially mean players could skip hours of grinding through games. Two months later, 343 was still considering adding microtransactions to Halo.

Microtransactions is a feature that has been around for many years, much to the dismay of gamers and Halo is no different.

Following this, 343 recently announced plans to drop the addition of purchasable Spartan Points to the series. Although the studio also noted that it was exploring other ways to reduce barriers to progression for Halo players.

As part of 343’s efforts to improve the progression system, the company announced that the 100 point cap will be removed, retroactive points will be offered to players, and other challenge changes will be introduced to challenges to make more rewarding experience. The update further stated that the studio would be bringing Double XP Weekends back to CMC. 343 also mentioned that he hopes to share more information by the time the next content update is delivered to Halo: The Master Chief Collection in November.

Earlier this month, 343 also updated fans on what to expect from Infinite Halo, which did not include features such as local cooperative play, which has been a franchise staple. Although the developers have teased other features and content to come at once Infinite Halo and MCC, tThe announcements surrounding the latest entry have even had fans wondering if Halo should be pursued by 343. Despite the studio’s ambitions, the future of the video game franchise remains cloudy, especially in terms of its orientation. Hopefully changes and additions to come Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Infinite will only continue to grow Halo‘s appeal among the fanbase.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is available now on PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
