As expected, the title can be enjoyed on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. The study plans are that all the players in the collection can play together at some point.
The studio has just taken an important step towards making this a reality, as the new update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection makes some improvements to later enable intergenerational play with the new consoles.
