PSA: Halo Infinite Multiplayer on PC Currently Only Works on Steam [Update]

Update: Following an update, Halo Infinite Multiplayer on the Xbox PC App is now playable, in addition to the Steam version and the console versions of the game.

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer was released early today, but if you are trying to play it right now, the Steam version appears to be the only platform currently running the game.

Halo Infinite was released on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S in addition to PC, where you can choose to play it either on the Xbox PC app or through Valve’s digital distribution platform Steam. At the time of writing, the Xbox App on PC or an Xbox console you can “preinstall” the game but the file size is about 200MB and doesn’t appear to launch properly.

Whereas if you want to play on Steam instead, you can install the game with a file size of around 26GB. We tested the Steam version and managed to get into a Quick Match easily.

While there is a similar blue screen issue on Xbox, restarting your console should push an update to your hardare that will bypass the blue screen and let you log into the Halo Infinite multiplayer.

Alongside releasing on Xbox hardware and PC, the Halo Infinite is also coming to Xbox Cloud Gaming, but at the time of writing, the cloud version appears to not be available (yet). While Halo Infinite Multiplayer did launch early and was highly anticipated following technical previews, the official Halo account notes that fans should “be patient” as the team tries to iron out any day one issues.

The Halo Support Twitter account also notes that it is aware of the issue where players are getting Blue Screened when launching the game. The tweet notes that an update should arrive shortly and that the team is working hard to try and roll the game out so everyone can enjoy it.

While Halo Infinite Multiplayer is available now, those looking to play the single-player campaign will have to wait just a bit longer when it releases on December 8.

Taylor is the Associate Tech Editor at IGN who really just wants to play Halo Infinite Multiplayer right now. You can follow her on Twitter @TayNixster.
