Will Halo Infinite have a Battle Royale mode or not? What’s the truth here?
Halo Infinite is meant to be the definitive next title in the Halo franchise that’ll bring things back on track. But rumors have been swirling that the next game will also feature a Battle Royale mode in order to keep with the recent trend of games. Another such rumor popped up recently, and all but “confirmed” this to be true. But Franchise Development Director, Frank O’Conor had this to say to that:
“We will not talk about the launch content of Halo Infinite until we’re ready,” said O’Conor over on Reset Era. “I haven’t watched the video [Sams’ report] so if I am misinterpreting the headline as ‘Halo Infinite is launching with/as a Halo Battle Royale mode’ that is still not the case. You can probably make your own battle royale mode in Forge even right now though. It’s a mode not a genre. And all the variants out there now are in my opinion quite radically different from my perspective.
We are NOT doing this as of now – and no plans to — but Battle Royale could be made for any of the Halo games in MCC or 5 with some content and scripting additions, because it is a mode. It would have limits based on each engine. I’m pointing that out to be clear that it’s one of the ways we think about gameplay possibilities rather than a single direction for a title.”
No release date for the game has been given as of yet.
