Microtransactions might be required for the Master Chief Collection, according to Halo ...

Microtransactions may be added to the Halo: Master Chief Collection, with developer 343 Industries stating in a community update that it is internally exploring the possibility of in-game purchases.

Currently, Halo players complete online challenges, which receive season points which can then be exchanged for a variety of in-game equipment. 343 notes that, since the Master Chief Collection was founded in 2014, over 1,000 new customization options in the form of cosmetics, attachments, and weapons. In order to avoid new players falling behind, optional microtransactions, available through the purchase of newly-named Spartan Points, may one day be available.

For players who are new to the MCC, the developer explains, or who may not have spent much time locating items during the seasonal updates, or simply completionists looking to retrieve the last outstanding items, we are internally exploring a potential new feature for the future in the form of purchasable Spartan Points.

343 has not confirmed a decision on adding microtransactions, but claims that if they arrive, they will be sold as an alternative to earning upgrades through playing and completion challenges the old system will still exist, and you will not need to pay for anything to be successful, but there will be an option to make in-game purchases if you want to quickly kit up and get on an even keel with the rest of the long-standing playerbase.

It is prudent to note here that we are satisfied with the current system of players earning Spartan Points, which involves satisfying challenges and leveling up through play. This would be an optional, added option for players who might find the vast scope of playtime to be an intimidating amount of play time and want to go ahead (or skip) the grind, or might want to acquire specific items.

There has been no date on when microtransactions will be permitted in Halo, according to the Master Chief Collection, but 343 believes it is now presenting the possibility in the hopes of transparency with our dedicated and passionate community.
