A Halo Infinite Battle Royale is supposedly in development and Halo support studio Certain Affinity is once again linked to the game mode, it’s been in the works for the past two or more years. Windows Central’s Jez Corden on the latest episode of the Xbox Two podcast added to the speculation that the game is separate from the main game and plans to release sometime during the third or fourth season this year.
The rumor hasn’t been officially confirmed by Microsoft, although it comes from Certain Affinity, which confirmed earlier this week that the studio is “deepening” its relationship with Halo’s main studio, 343 Industries. The studio teased that it is now working to advance Halo Infinite “in some new and exciting ways.”
A battle royale game is certainly one way to do this, but it’s not too surprising that Certain Affinity is attached, given that it was reported back in January that the studio was reportedly working on a new game mode, codenamed “Tatanka.” Trying to walk this “evolving” journey with a little more help, Certain Affinity is currently hiring for Halo-related roles across Austin, Toronto and abroad.
If the rumor is true, it could be a while before Microsoft confirms the Halo Battle Royale’s existence, and we’re still awaiting the release of campaign co-op or forge modes for the main game. Until then, Halo Infinite Season 2 – Lone Wolves – is slated to begin on May 3 with newly added maps that will be “very different” from the ones you’re familiar with.
