343 Industries’ Frank O’Connor has responded to rumors that Halo Infinite might launch with a dedicated Battle Royale mode. MSPoweruser tracked down the statement made by O’Connor after speculation that a portion of the game’s budget was being used to create a dedicated mode copying Apex: Legends or even Fortnite. While not totally ruling it out as an option later, O’Connor denied any plans to launch with officially supported Battle Royale, and stated that the developers consider it something the community could make in the popular user-led Forge modification mode.
“But are we interested in big social modes with loads of organic shenanigans? Yes. Specifically A blimp full of survivors heading to an Island after a (metaphorical) lecture from Beat Takeshi? No.”
Halo Infinite still has no release date, but it will be coming to Xbox One and Windows 10.
