You might remember that Microsoft had partnered with Dolby last year, introducing support for both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos to the Xbox consoles in addition to Windows PC.
Now, it seems like their flagship game for this Holiday season, 343 Industries' Halo Infinite, will support both technologies on PC and Xbox. That's what the official game page on Dolby's website says, anyway.
While many games already support Dolby Atmos object-based surround sound, very few allowed users to enable the Dolby Vision HDR format, too. A few Frostbite games like Mass Effect Andromeda, Anthem, Madden, and Battlefield 1 briefly supported it, but there were some bugs and eventually, Dolby Vision was actually removed from most of those titles.
Hopefully, Halo Infinite's implementation will be much more solid. In related news, it looks like 343 Industries will be unveiling the multiplayer modes at E3.
