Unfortunately, the Game Pass version isn’t cooperating for a lot of users causing a range of different issues. Some users who pre-installed the game can’t update the game, while other users can’t uninstall the game.

All these issues are known Game Pass and Xbox app issues that Microsoft should have fixed by now. However, as with tradition, nothing has been done about it. If you recently played Halo Infinite Campaign you know exactly what we’re talking about. Thankfully, most of the solutions that help fix the Halo Infinite Campaign on Game Pass will also work for the Halo Infinite Campaign. So let’s get started on solving all of these issues.

A TIP: when using Game Pass on PC.

Game Pass has a lot of major problems storing, removing and managing game installation files. The Halo Infinite Campaign isn’t the first problem of this kind. As a result, we recommend everyone who is using Game Pass on PC use a separate drive for game installations. If you don’t have a spare drive we suggest creating a partition on the drive you have and using it solely for Game Pass games.

Having a separate drive or partition allows you to quickly and easily format the location if Game Pass games get stuck. Quite often games will uninstall from the Xbox app but all the files and data remain on your drive. You can check out a comprehensive guide on it all here.

There is an update for Halo Infinite Campaign but it won’t start?!

If you know there is an update for the Halo infinite campaign but it won’t appear in the Microsoft Store or on the Xbox app, Restart your computer. For some reason, this will trigger the download process the next time you start your computer and open the Xbox app or the Microsoft Store. You can use this method for any Game Pass games as well.

Can you fix the Halo Infinite Campaign download not resuming after pausing on Game Pass?

There are a couple of things you can try to solve this issue but I can’t promise they will work for everyone or every time.

  • The first thing you can try is opening the Xbox app on your device, then shutting down your computer while the app is running. Sometimes this will trick the Xbox app into taking action against any unfinished downloads. Once your device boots back up, the Halo Infinite Campaign should start downloading again when you open the Xbox app.

If that doesn’t work, you can try clearing and bugs out of the installation by using Storage Sense to clear the Delivery Optimization Files on your computer.

  • To do this, to go to Settings > System > Storage > Temporary Files > Delivery Optimization Files. Once you are in this location make sure Delivery Optimization Files is ticked then click Remove files to clear out any leftover game files.

This should sort out whatever issue is causing the game to get stuck and allow you to re-download it again.
