Halo Infinite won't have a battle royale mode (probably)

'The only BR we're interested in is the Battle Rifle' states Halo Infinite writer

In a social livestream hosted overnight on Halo's Mixer channel, developer 343 Industries played a bit of Halo, had a bit of fun with stream chat, and answered a few fan questions.

Meanwhile, both Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Battlefield V will be delivering their own respective takes on battle royale when they launch later this year.

Halo Infinite - no Battle Royale for Master Chief? "Speaking on a Mixer live stream, 343 Industries" lead writer Jeff Easterling - known to Halo-philes as Grim Brother One - also said that Battle Royale wasn't now on the agendas for the upcoming Halo Infinite. Here's what 343 writer Jeff Easterling had to say on the subject... This much was revealed when Easterling responded to a fan question about the game mode being included in the sequel, as he said, "I'll tell you right now, the only BR we're really interested in is Battle Rifle".

Well, there you go!

Seeing as Halo Infinite is probably a long way off from release, this is as close as we're going to get to a confirmation this far ahead. Maybe it will still be going strong, or perhaps the fad will have passed. Better for Halo to just focus on being Halo. Without a doubt, those who aren't upset about the exclusion of a Battle Royale mode will be more excited at the prospect of getting to experience the game's new story centered around Master Chief. Developed by 343 Industries and created with the studio's new Slipspace Engine, Halo Infinite debuted at the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing with a thrilling engine demo that provides a glimpse into the future of the Halo franchise that leads it into new and unexpected directions.
