A little bit of good news coming from 343 Industries, sort of, as it has been confirmed the company will not be adding cash loot boxes in Halo: Infinite. In a bit of a thread on Twitter, Studio Head FPS at 343 Industries Chris Lee confirmed that the company will not be adding any form of loot boxes that require money to obtain in the game.
Keep the faith, it’s appreciated! We’re still working through final plans and will share more when we are ready, but I can definitely say that Halo Infinite will not include real-money loot boxes.

However, this is not all good news if you read between the lines. Lee chose his words carefully and did not say Halo: Infinite wouldn’t have any loot boxes. So prepare for that door to be kicked open when the devs eventually release more information, as we’re sure Halo will not join the ever-growing list of FPS titles to incorporate the system.
