Halo Infinite: How to avoid the save wipe glitch
The narrative in Halo Infinite is a large open-world populated with side-quests, items, and enemies. Exploring Zeta Halo may be rather satisfying, especially when you’ve completed a section. Sadly, one of the game’s flaws has been known to totally wipe players’ campaign progress. This glitch in Halo Infinite can delete your save.
For Xbox and PC, this bug is present. Those afflicted by the bug report getting a Microsoft sign-in prompt while playing Halo Infinite despite previously logging in. Avoid pressing “Let’s Go” if this happens. You’re save file will be corrupted, and you will lose all data. Instead, simply exit the menu to keep your progress.
343 Industries has yet to openly address this issue or offer advice on how to minimize or mitigate its occurrence. We’ll update this post if the corporation gives an official answer. Based on user reports, any of the following acts could cause the dreaded double login prompt:
- Plugging in a second controller to your system
- Disconnecting/reconnecting your controller
- Being logged in on both Xbox and PC while playing Halo Infinite
- Starting Halo Infinite via Quick Resume while multiple Xbox accounts are logged in on your Xbox.
When a new controller is detected, the game appears to want to compel a Microsoft account sign-in. To avoid obtaining the login prompt, keep just one controller connected to the console when playing Halo Infinite, and avoid using the Xbox’s Quick Resume feature, which has been known to hinder multiplayer unlocks in Halo Infinite’s campaign. If everything else fails, remember to hit “Let’s Go” to exit the login prompt.
