Halo’s latest update kicks out a lot of gamers who use older GPUs.
Halo Infinite officially requires 4 GB of VRAM, this was confirmed by Microsoft and 343 Indrustries in 2021 and nothing has changed since then. The official PC hardware specifications must be known to all players, especially players using the official Microsoft store where the same requirements are stated. But Steam users won’t find this information in the official specs list.
Some gamers install this game without knowing about the PC specification requirements. After all, all they see is an entry-level GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1060 GPU listed as a minimum, but the latter is also available with 3GB of VRAM. Apparently, before the Season 3 update that was released this month, the 3GB GPU was not completely locked out of the game. Many players are still able to run Halo Infinite even though the launcher error is displayed. Especially the GTX 1060 3GB performs quite well in low settings, many users say.
Unfortunately, running Halo Infinite Season 3 with 3GB VRAM is no longer possible, the game won’t start. This means that official requirements are no longer considered recommendations, there is no way to bypass these requirements anymore. Of course, it’s only been a week since the new patch was released, so there’s still a chance that people will figure out how to break into this system.

The last NVIDIA 3GB cards launched were the GTX 1060 3GB (almost 7 years now) and GTX 1050 3GB (5 years) models. It’s still a capable GPU for older games and MMO games, but the VRAM limitation is still a tough hurdle to get rid of.
