Halo 5 Is Not Getting A Dedicated Xbox Series X Upgrade, But It Will Have Faster Load Times

Microsoft has confirmed that it has no plans to release a dedicated optimization update for Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox Series X/S as it’s doing for Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

While there won’t be the same 120fps/4K optimizations for Halo 5 on the next-gen consoles, Halo 5 will enjoy faster load times and higher resolutions overall thanks to the power of the new machines.

“While Halo 5 is not getting the same optimizations for Xbox Series X and Series S as MCC, owners of the next-gen hardware are still going to see the benefits of faster load times and consistently higher resolution gameplay,” Microsoft said in a blog post. “We’re excited for you all to jump on and give it a go with that extra power!”

Halo 5 is coming up on an anniversary–the game turns five years old next Tuesday, October 27. To celebrate, the game has been offering double XP all month.
