Can you play Halo Infinite multiplayer in split-screen?

Traditionally, Halo games have been split-screen friendly. Halo games have split-screen for their Campaign modes, Multiplayer, Forge... Everything you can do in Halo with one player, you can do with two co-operatively.

343 Industries' most-recent release, Halo Infinite, doesn't have any level of Co-Operative Campaign features and Forge is still in development. It does have multiplayer, though, so it seems only natural to ask "does Halo Infinite support split-screen gameplay for Multiplayer?"

Here's what we know...

Does Halo Infinite support split-screen?

You'll be pleased to know that, despite the fact that several core modes are missing, you can play Halo Infinite's Multiplayer split-screen with a friend. At the moment, it isn't as simple as you might remember it being...

If you're having trouble, here's a step-by-step guide on how to start Halo Infinite's Multiplayer in split-screen - just like the good ol' days!

  • Turn on and connect a second Xbox controller to your console;
  • Press the Menu button and log into a second Xbox account using this controller;
  • Return to Halo Infinite's Multiplayer menu;

At the moment, you cannot play Halo Infinite Multiplayer split-screen with a Guest account. This, with any luck, will change in the future.

It's important to note that Xbox One only supports a two-player split-screen session on Multiplayer. However, an Xbox Series X|S supports a four-player split-screen session. At the moment, Halo Infinite on PC doesn't have any split-screen support. This could change, though... Keep an eye on the official social media accounts for more information.

FIGHT TOGETHER - You'll both need Xbox accounts, though.

We don't know exactly when other split-screen modes are coming to Halo Infinite - namely Co-Op Campaign and Forge - but we should learn more about this soon. There is already a glitch out there that allows you to access the Halo Infinite Campaign co-operatively, however, it's far from the complete experience you'd expect. We would advise sticking it out and waiting for more information.
