Initial reports suggested that Halo Infinite will offer four-player local split-screen support for its campaign mode, but this is not the case. 343 Industries head of design, Jerry Hook, said on Twitter that Infinite will support two-player split-screen locally. Up to four players can play the campaign together online, however.
“Sorry about the confusion,” Hook wrote. No details about split-screen support for Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode have been announced yet.
Hey everyone I saw some reports of campaign supporting 4 player Split screen for campaign and just want to correct. Halo Infinite will be supporting 2 player split screen and 4 player online co-op for campaign. Sorry about the confusion. #haloinfinte

Halo Infinite simply having split-screen is a big deal because 343 controversially left it out of Halo 5: Guardians. Xbox boss Phil Spencer says only a small percentage of people play local split-screen in Halo games, so that’s why the feature was cut for Halo 5.
