There have been long-standing rumors that Halo Infinite would be getting a dedicated Battle Royale mode. However, a new leak has come out that indicated that it’s been replaced by a new mode.

Battle Royale has become such a phenomenon over the last few years that it would be understandable if Halo’s devs decided to try their own luck and experiment with it. The early impression was that we would be seeing 100 Master Chiefs using Spikers to assert their dominance.

However, a reliable leaker on Reddit has come forward with contradictory claims and thinks that Halo Infinite is opting for a different mode instead.

Battle Royale not coming to Halo Infinite after all?

Given how successful Fortnite, PUBG, and Apex Legends have been, other companies have decided that they want in the action. Call of Duty developers went with this mentality for Warzone and it paid off spectacularly.

You’d imagine that even a half-hearted Halo Battle Royale would be a huge success and a great accompaniment for Halo Infinite.

But Klobrille has claimed that 343 Industries are not interested in pursuing current trends and want to break new ground for the legendary Halo franchise.

Instead, the developers are going to focus on creating “Big Team Battle 2.0,” a new concept for Halo that seems to lean heavily on Battlefield elements.

The new mode could have some of the following features:

  • Enhanced vehicular combat
  • Squad spawning
  • Incoming pelican drops
  • Big teams

If this comes to fruition, then it will represent a leap forward in innovation for Halo and its multiplayer.

Halo Infinite is expected to launch to much hype and expectation later this year in the latter stages of 2021.
