There is no doubt that Certain Affinity is developing a Halo Infinite battle royale mode at the moment. Earlier this week, we reported that the mode was in development for PC and Xbox after an insider began teasing an announcement. Today, more details on the game’s mode have come to light thanks to a Reddit user who is well-versed in wrestling.
According to reports, the Halo Infinite battle royale mode is currently in development under the codename Tatanka. If you don’t know (I had no idea myself), Tatanka is actually an American wrestler that is known for his historic success in winning a 40-man battle royale match in 1992.
Reddit user yutuyo20 spotted this online which then sparked many to believe that the Halo Infinite battle royale mode might be a 40-player experience.
Of course, none of this has been confirmed as of yet. Certain Affinity has yet to announce anything. The studio hasn’t even acknowledged the existence of the mode. The studio has only stated they plan on evolving Halo Infinite with new content.
Another insider claims that the studio isn’t working on a battle royale at all. Given the recent Tatanka reference, perhaps the mode is just a large-scale warfare experience with 40-player teams? We will only know once the studio officially announces it.
Halo Infinite is currently available on PC and Xbox. The game’s multiplayer mode is free-to-play while users need to purchase the campaign or have an active Xbox Game Pass subscription to play it. 343 Industries just rolled out Season 2 for the game but sadly also delayed the co-op campaign.
