Infinite Halo has been recognized by the fast food establishment McDonald’s. The Xbox-exclusive first-person shooter released in late 2021 after a long wait. The game came about six years later Halo 5, an entry that split the fanbase and made 343 rethink what he was doing with the franchise. The developer opted to make Master Chief’s sixth main adventure a semi-open world game that mostly stood on its own, acting almost like a soft reboot of the story 343 had been telling for the past decade. On top of that, 343 plans to support the game for years to come, and it looks like McDonald’s has found a way to get in on the action.
On Instagram, McDonald’s posted three photos of Master Chief holding different items including a spoon, a straw and a giant McDonald’s fry with the caption “Which Halo unlock are you excited for?” Tragically, McDonald’s is unlikely to actually have any in-game items in Infinite Halo, But it is not impossible. Xbox plans to allow brands to advertise on its platform later this year through free games. Infinite HaloMultiplayer is free-to-play, so McDonald’s could be featured in the game by the end of 2022 if Microsoft goes through with its plans.
Nonetheless, it’s fun to see Master Chief holding a comically large fry. Infinite Halo should receive its second season of content in early May 2020. During the season, 343 should finally add the ability to play the campaign in co-op. The feature was previously a franchise staple, but the developer launched it without it or Forge mode. Unfortunately, there’s no concrete timeline for Forge Mode, but it’s still expected to launch by the end of the year. On top of all this, there are strong rumors that Infinite Halo will also get a battle royale, but nothing has been directly confirmed.
