If Method 1 doesn’t work for you, continue to try Method 2.

Method 2: Disable High-Res Textures

When you install Halo Infinite, you get a Multiplayer High-Res Textures pack enabled by default, which can cause the game not to launch. To fix the issue, you can try disabling it.

1) Launch Steam.

2) Right-click on Halo Infinite in your Library and select Properties.

3) Click the DLC tab and uncheck the box next to “Multiplayer High-Res Textures”.

4) Launch the game and see if the issue is fixed.

If Method 2 doesn’t work for you, continue to try Method 3.

Method 3: Verify integrity of game files

Corrupted or missing game files can cause game not launching issues. The “Verify integrity of game files” feature in Steam allows you to repair and replace any corrupted or missing game files. You can use it to fix your Halo Infinite won’t launch issues.

Follow these steps:

1) Launch Steam.

2) Right-click on Halo Infinite in your Library and then select Properties.

3) Click the Local Files tab and click the Verify integrity of game files… button. Then Steam will start verifying the game files. It may take several minutes for the process to complete. Please wait until the process is complete.

5) Relaunch Halo Infinite on Steam and check to see if it launches properly.

If Method 3 doesn’t work for you, continue to try Method 4.

Method 4: Update graphics card drivers

Outdated graphics card drivers can also cause the Halo Infinite not launching error. To fix the error, you can try updating the graphics card drivers.

You can update the graphics card drivers manually. If you don’t have time or don’t know much about drivers, you can do it easily with Driver Easy.

If Method 4 doesn’t work for you, you can try Method 5.

Method 5: Disable integrated graphics card

This method only works for users who have dual graphics cards, the integrated graphics card and the dedicated graphics cards.

If you have dual graphics cards, the game may be using the integrated graphics card instead of the dedicated graphics card. In that case, the game may not launch properly. To fix the issue, you can try disabling the integrated graphics card.

To do so:

1) Open Device Manager.

2) Under the “Display adapters” category, right-click on your integrated graphics card and select Disable device.

3) Launch Halo Infinite.

4) Check to see if the game starts up successfully. If yes, access Device Manager again and re-enable the integrated graphics card.

If this method doesn’t resolve the issue, try the next method.

Method 6: Check your antivirus software settings

If you have antivirus software installed, check their settings and ensure Halo Infinite is not blocked. If Halo Infinite is blocked by your antivirus software, you’ll need to add the HaloInfinite.exe as an exception on the antivirus software.

Method 7: Reinstall the game

If none of the above methods works for you, the last resort you can try is to reinstall the game.

Here’s how:

1) Open Steam.

2) Right-click on Halo Infinite in your Library, and select Manage > Uninstall from the drop-down menus.

3) Once the game is uninstalled, right-click on Halo Infinite (which should be grayed out) in the Library tab and select Install from the drop-down menu.

4) Once the game is installed, check to see if the game starts up successfully.
