343 Industries has confirmed that price changes will be hitting the Halo Infinite marketplace next week.
While many of Halo Infinite’s initial issues have been slowly ironed out and polished over the past month, there are still some things the community isn’t happy with. One such topic is the price of items in the store, which are considered way too expensive by most players, with most packs costing between $10 and $20 and often not worth it. Well, except for the cat ears.
However, that should change next week. Jerry Hook, Head of Design at 343, announced on Twitter that the team has reviewed the market and how to change it, and will implement these changes starting Tuesday, January 18.
Hook said, “We’ve been closely monitoring store discussions, bundles, and pricing since launch. Using data and community feedback, we’ll begin to make changes to the way we package and price the items in [Halo] Infinite – and it all starts next week. Starting Tuesday, the store experience will vary from week to week. We’re focused on lowering prices across the board, providing stronger values in our bundles, starting to put individual items outside of bundles, and more.”
Hook finished by saying: “We will be trying new things throughout the season so that we can continue to learn and improve for the future. Please continue to give us your feedback during this process and I hope to see you all next week for the Cyber Showdown Event!”
Although Hook makes it clear that the market will change over the next week, it is not clear if bundles will be cheaper or if the number of items included in each pack will increase. It seems likely it will be cheaper instead of having bigger bundles, although it’s possible it’s a mix of the two. It’s also worth noting that the store experience will “apparently vary week-to-week”, as opposed to updating daily.
