Halo Infinite will not have a battle royale mode, he confirmed 343 Industries.

Rumors had suggested that the new chapter would introduce the mode. Further speculation suggested that Halo Infinite would also launch in four chapters between 2021 and 2031 and that the game would be supported by two spin-off titles to bridge the gap between releases.

However, Halo community director Brian Jarrard quickly moved to disprove both the battle royale and the other rumors. Jarrard said the recent rumors about Halo Infinite were ” unfounded “.

The rumors first surfaced on the GameLeaksRumors Twitter account. The tweet in question has since been deleted, which suggests that the information provided was false. Other rumors suggested that it was Microsoft, and not 343, pushing hard for a battle royale mode.

Halo Infinite has been inundated with criticism after the gameplay reveal at the July showcase. This forced 343 to postpone the scheduled release for November 2020. Former game director Chris Lee’s departure in late October also fueled speculation that Infinite development was faltering. Bungie veteran Joseph Staten , who worked on the original Halo trilogy, was called back to lead game development after Lee’s departure.

In a subsequent tweet, Jarrard revealed that 343 will soon reveal news about the game’s development.

Halo Infinite will launch on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC. There is no official release date yet.
