According to reliable Xbox insider Klobrille, Halo Infinite will not have a battle-royale mode despite the rumours suggesting otherwise. The game could have Big Team Battle 2.0 mode, instead.
One of the biggest Xbox exclusives - Halo Infinite - is set to launch sometime in Autumn 2021 and with it, we expect to see a plethora of game modes. If you follow the game closely, you probably read rumours regarding a battle royale mode, which is reportedly one of the game modes in Halo Infinite.
However, despite these rumours, a well-known Xbox insider Klobrille is sure the game won't have a battle royale mode . Apparently, 343 Industries are working on something different, that fits the Halo franchise much better.
"I know there won't be a battle royale mode. To my limited knowledge, instead, the team is creating a Big Team Battle 2.0 mode, which is a better fit for Halo, including massively enhanced vehicular combat, squad spawning, incoming Pelican drops and many more surprises."
To us, this sounds a lot like something that you may find in Battlefield or Call of Duty lately. Perhaps, a large 32 vs 32 multiplayer mode, with huge maps would certainly suit the game better than a classic battle royale mode.
Klobrille added that Halo is a series that once was all about setting trends, not following them. "The fact 343 tries to go back to this principle is a good thing. Forge will be MASSIVELY expanded on in Halo Infinite. I’m sure if players would want to see a Halo Battle Royale mode, players could just create it," he wrote.
