Halo: The Master Chief Collection is being ported to the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S next month, and it'll be boasting some pretty impressive upgrades on arrival.

The optimization for the Master Chief Collection was announced earlier today on Twitter. As you can see below, you'll be able to play through all six Halo games in 120FPS, for both the campaign and multiplayer portions, and the Xbox Series X will support 4K in four-player split-screen mode.

The Master Chief Collection will arrive on both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S next month on November 17, just a week after both next-gen consoles launch worldwide. It'll be available as a free upgrade for existing owners of the Master Chief Collection, or for free via Xbox Game Pass.

This is a lovely bit of news for Halo fans who plan on picking up either of Microsoft's next-gen consoles next month in November. Microsoft has long boasted about the backwards compatible capabilities of both their next-gen consoles, but they're actually optimizing the entire Master Chief Collection for an enhanced performance on both consoles.

The boosted collection will be a nice holdover until Halo Infinite eventually arrives at some point in 2021. After being delayed out of a 2020 release date earlier this year, Halo Infinite has no solid release window locked down, and Microsoft could still ship the game in separate parts, with campaign and multiplayer seeing a staggered launch.
