Well, this is a new one; chalk Halo Infinite as one game that won’t be jumping into the battle royale bandwagon. In a livestream on Halo’s Mixer channel earlier today, developer 343 Industries answered a few fan questions, and naturally, given how hot the battle royale genre is right now, a fan asked whether Infinite would feature some kind of mode like it.
343 Industries’ Jeff Easterling (also known as “Grim Brother One” within the Halo community) answered the question definitively and said, “I’ll tell you right now, the only BR we’re interested in is Battle Rifle. The original BR. So, calm yourself.”
Easterling’s mention of BR refers to the Battle Rifle gun seen in most Halo titles. While this might seem like a confirmation to most, don’t forget that 343 can do an about-face, and release a battle royale mode post-launch.
Would you want to see a Halo Infinite battle royale mode? Or are you getting sick of the mode appearing in almost every shooter?
