Certain Affinity works as a support team on the Halo for many years now, but in recent times it has changed gears to get to work on something much bigger. A few days ago, after months of rumors, he confirmed that he has partnered with 343 to evolve Infinite “in new and intriguing ways”.
After this important statement, the Certain Infinity team has been careful not to reveal in-depth details about it. This is where Jez Corden, a well-known Windows Central pen usually well informed about the facts concerning Redmond, comes into play. During the last episode of Rand’s podcast at Thor, the reporter returned to the subject by revealing some indiscretions. Apparently, this Halo Infinite related project would be a large-scale Battle Royale separate from the base game (therefore not a simple additional mode of multiplayer), the development of which would be proceeding for two years. The goal would be to attract new gamers to the Halo franchise, especially those who have crowded free-to-play servers in recent years such as Fortnite, Apex Legends And Call of Duty Warzone. According to Corden, this mode would be meant to tie into the Forge (expected for Season 3), probably in a way reminiscent of the integration of Creative Mode in Fortnite.
The launch of the Battle Royale is expected to happen between the third and fourth seasons of Halo Infinite. Since the rumors want her to be entrusted to an external team, her development would not be interfering with the work of 343 Industries. However, the wait could still last many months, considering that we are still waiting for the start of Season 2 of Halo Infinite, set for May 3, 2022.
