Halo: The Master Chief Collection may get microtransactions in the future

What you need to know

  • 343 Industries has announced that it may add purchasable “Spartan Points” to Halo: Master Chief Collection in the future.
  • These “Spartan Points” are renamed Season Points that exist in the game currently, and they allow players to unlock cosmetics in Halo: MCC.
  • If implemented, 343 Industries says that these microtransactions would be additive and that they would not affect how players can currently earn points by leveling up and completing in-game challenges.
  • The developer confirmed that it would have more information to share in a future update.

In the latest Halo Community Update, developer 343 Industries has announced that in the future, it may introduce a purchasable currency to Halo: The Master Chief Collection (Halo: MCC) in the form of “Spartan Point” microtransactions. With the studio moving away from seasonal updates for the game, it has plans to rename Halo: MCC’s Season Points — the currency that players can earn and use to unlock cosmetics — to Spartan Points. When this happens, a way to directly purchase Spartan Points may also be added.

In the blog post, it was stressed that if these microtransactions are implemented, they would strictly be an additive feature, and that the studio is “happy with the current system of how players earn Spartan Points, by completing challenges and levelling up through play.” The purchasable Spartan Points would simply give fans a quick and direct way to unlock more customization items they don’t have yet, allowing them to skip the leveling process.
