Microsoft used the Xbox Development Kit in the Halo Championship

IGN Report Microsoft needs to resort to using some Xbox Series X development kits Halo infinite The Halo Championship series shows that due to continued chip shortages, even companies that make consoles have difficulty obtaining it.

In a tweet posted by the ratings leader of Halo eSports and 343 Industries Tahir Hasandjekic, he said that open-frame players will use Xbox Series X development kits, citing chip shortages.

Development kits are what they say: they are locked consoles used by developers to make games to be released in retail establishments. Despite this, they still have the same guts as the retail department, so while this is a good solution for the Halo Championship Series, it highlights the severity of the supply chain shortage. Microsoft is not the only company dealing with the small number of consoles available on the shelf.

The Halo Championship Series was held in the past three days this weekend, and even with the development kit, it seems to have ended smoothly. The highest prize is a prize pool of 250,000 USD + crowdfunding, and a considerable wallet demonstrates the importance of e-sports to franchising.

Halo Infinite just came out a few weeks ago, but it has already made many annual game charts. It also has a lot of synergy with the new Xbox Elite controller. In any case, Halo’s nostalgia is still strong, just like appearing in unexpected places these days.

Halo Infinite is now available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
