According to the latest rumours, 343 Industries are planning two Halo spin-off titles after Halo Infinite. On top of this, a free to play battle royale mode for Halo Infinite is set to be released in 2021.
343 Industries and Microsoft certainly have big plans for Halo franchise and thanks to the latest leaks we may have got first details about these plans. Apparently, Halo Infinite will function similarly to the Master Chief Collection, with four releases in ten years. Additionally, the devs plan two spin-off games but these are currently in early stages of development.
One of the spin-offs is the third instalment of Halo Wars while the other one is set to be included under Infinite's platform and follows Fireteam Osiris during Infinite's events.
As for Halo Infinite game modes, the leak states that 45v45 UNSC vs Banished, a redefined version of Invasion is set to be the main mode for the game. There's also a battle royale mode in development and will be free-to-play.
The ending of the game is still to be completed and 343 industries are currently testing two possible endings which will have a major effect on the future of the franchise. The release window is internally set between March and June 2020 but this is not final, just yet.
As always with leaks and rumours, a hefty dose of scepticism is required until we get an official confirmation or at least a more solid info from reliable Xbox insiders.
Halo Infinite is currently in development for Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2021.
