Not just mouse and keyboard: the PC version of Halo Infinite will also make use of the Discord platform according to a cryptic statement
The long wait for Halo Infinite it will end this fall, but to make it even harder to bear it has provided the latest official statement from the community manager John Junyszek: its PC we will see an implementation of Discord.

John Junyszek added in the tweet below that Halo Infinite’s social features on PC (like Discord) deserve “a lot more attention” than they are getting now. According to him, there are still too few who talk about it, but the manager remains certain that things will change. The team working on the computer port is in fact already working on these functions that Junyszek “can’t wait” to see in action. The extended version of the post, while still remaining cryptic, also goes into a little more detail, but for now the clearer information in our possession stop here.
There’s not enough people talking about this one yet, but they will be. If it wasn’t clear already, the PC Team has been putting in work. I can’t wait for everyone to see this in action!
