The multiplayer’s been out for a couple of months now and it looks there will finally be some changes coming to Halo Infinite’s store prices – with developer 343 Industries promising that it is “focused on reducing” those prices and “providing stronger values” in what’s available.
Since Halo Infinite’s multiplayer released in November for free, the developer’s seen more than a few complaints about the way it’s handled things – such as the lack of Slayer playlists, the way progression in the Battle Pass works, and, yes, the price of various cosmetics in the real-money store.
The good news is that 343 seems to be listening to feedback regarding all these issues and is working on improving them – and now it’s the turn of the store. 343’s head of design Jerry Hook took to Twitter to say that the studio is “going to begin rolling out changes” to the way they “package and price items” in Halo Infinite’s online multiplayer shop – and that’ll start this coming Tuesday, January 18.
According to Hook, the store will now “vary week-to-week” and the team intends to reduce prices, make bundles better value for money, to make items that are available in bundles separately, “and more”. He also adds that 343 is “trying new things throughout the rest of the season” so that it “can continue to learn and improve for the future”.
Starting Tuesday, the Shop experience will vary week-to-week. We are focused on reducing pricing across the board, providing stronger values in our bundles, starting to put individual items outside of bundles, and more.

These changes should hit around the same time as Halo Infinite’s Cyber Showdown event this Tuesday, which will feature new cosmetics to unlock like a cybernetic mohawk. That’ll go well with nail polish.
