Battle royale titles have taken the gaming community by storm taking the multiplayer experience to the next level, although it seems that Halo Infinite will not need a battle royale mode.
Many fans had expected the upcoming Halo Infinite title to include a battle royale mode, however according to Xbox’s Phil Spencer, the title doesn’t need a battle royale.
Spencer mentioned this in a recent interview with IGN where he explained how Halo Infinite will have a more traditional approach when it comes to its multiplayer mode.
Spencer said “With a lot of the innovations and evolutions that have happened in FPS multiplayer over the years, there was something very pure about coming back to a Halo Arena experience and how clean it was and how tight the gameplay loop was.”
He also went on to say “Right now on our platform there are not a lot of games that are going back to that tried and true formula and perfecting what they have, and I think that’s what the goal of this team is.”
Spencer also noted that he thinks the Halo franchise will continue to be popular for years to come and said he doesn’t think Halo Infinite will be a “make or break” moment in the series.
“Halo will be here 10 years from now. Is Infinite the lynchpin for whether or not it survives that long? Absolutely not. The game has such a rabid fanbase and such a history and lore that it’s just an IP that’s going to be with us.”
“We don’t take that for granted, but I definitely believe that in my core. I never want to put a team in a position where they feel like, ‘Hey, this one’s gotta land or who knows”.
The title will still be expected to adapt to new gaming trends we see popular with other big games, as Halo Infinite is a ‘live service’ title, allowing the game to evolve and update.
Could it be that we see a battle royale mode added in the future?
It’s too early to say, it looks as though fans will have to wait until the games release to see what is in store.
