“We will not talk about the launch content of Halo Infinite until we’re ready,” O’Connor wrote. “I haven’t watched the video so if I am misinterpreting the headline as ‘Halo Infinite is launching with/as a Halo Battle Royale mode’ that is still not the case. You can probably make your own Battle Royale mode in Forge even right now though. It’s a mode not a genre.”

“The launch modes for MP are not 100% defined and are subject to change till quite late in the process – but Battle Rifle will still be there,” he added. “So you can have BR. 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.

“We are NOT doing this as of now – and no plans to — but Battle Royale could be made for any of the Halo games in MCC or 5 with some content and scripting additions, because it is a mode. It would have limits based on each engine. I’m pointing that out to be clear that it’s one of the ways we think about gameplay possibilities rather than a single direction for a title.”

Outside of battle royale, we know that 343 Industries have huge ambitions for Infinite, and are planning to design it as a spiritual reboot of the series. The developer has been quite open about admitting to the mistakes in its past- mistakes that it seems intent on fixing.

"Oops, battle royal isn't just a fad, we have to incorporate it into halo... but f***... I've said it'll never happen... maybe... maybe if it was just a mode...? Yeah... it's just a mode!

More like "we arent doing it, but if you really want one, you could make one in Forge ".
