The idea of a Halo Infinite battle royale has been a topic of discussion dating back to 2018 when the game was first announced. Halo really does have the ideal foundation for a battle royale mode, so it makes sense that fans of the franchise would be intrigued by the thought. While the fate of Halo Infinite battle royale is still ultimately up in the air, there does exist plenty of leaks and details on this prospective game mode.

Halo Infinite Battle Royale fan requests

It’s not just the general population of Halo fans demanding a Halo Infinite battle royale mode. Prominent names in the gaming space continue to come out and publicly announce their desire for a battle royale in Halo.

Matthew "Nadeshot" Haag, CEO of 100 Thieves and former Call of Duty pro, has stated that he believes a Halo battle royale might be the best BR ever made.

Timothy "TimTheTatman" Jon Betar said in a tweet that Halo has the perfect framework for a battle royale mode.

Jack "CouRage" Dunlop released the most aggressive statement, claiming that if Halo Infinite does not have a battle royale mode, that it will be one of the “greatest gaming failures in history.”

It’s clear that a large portion of the community desires a Halo Infinite battle royale, but what do the developers have to say?

Halo Infinite Battle Royale: Breaking Down The Rumours

Talks of a Halo Infinite battle royale mode date back to the game’s early development. Back in the summer of 2018, the battle royale titles of Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Call of Duty: Warzone were dominating the gaming world. Battle royale games were, and for the most part, still are the trendy thing to play.

With the massive success of battle royale, it only made sense that Halo fans would wonder if their favourite game would succumb to the battle royale craze. Jeff Easterling, Halo’s franchise writer, quickly shot down this idea during a live stream on Mixer saying, "I'll tell you right now, the only BR we're interested in is Battle Rifle."

The tide changed in 2019 though, when Microsoft insider Brad Sams reported that 343 was considering adding a battle royale mode to Halo Infinite. Sams claimed that Halo Infinite’s battle royale mode would add a new twist on the genre, but provided no further details.

In response to the report by Sams, Halo’s franchise manager Frank O’ Conner relayed on the ResetEra forums that 343 will not discuss Halo Infinite’s launch content until they are ready. However, O’ Conner refuted the battle royale speculation, confirming that Halo Infinite would not launch with battle royale included. Instead, he suggested that Halo players could create their own battle royale mode using Forge.

In the time since, others close to the development of Halo Infinite have doubled down on the stance that Halo Infinite will not have a battle royale mode. Community director Brian Jarrard said the ongoing rumours are “unfounded,” while executive vice president of gaming at Xbox, Phil Spencer, said in an interview that Halo Infinite is better off focusing on the Arena mode experience.

Going solely off of the words of the individuals working on Halo Infinite, the prospects of a Halo Infinite battle royale seem slim. However, there are some leaks and details that refute 343 and Microsoft’s anti-battle royale stance.

Will Halo Infinite Have Battle Royale?

So, will Halo Infinite ultimately feature a battle royale mode? Despite what the higher-ups at 343 and Microsoft say, there is evidence that a Halo Infinite battle royale is in the works.

For starters, Tom Henderson, a reputable insider responsible for a plethora of accurate leaks related to titles like Call of Duty and Battlefield, claims that a Halo Infinite battle royale has been in development for years. Henderson says that he cannot confirm if the idea has been scrapped or when it could be released, but Halo Infinite battle royale was certainly under development for quite some time. 

The most damning piece of evidence that suggests Halo Infinite will have a battle royale mode is a leaked voice line that was datamined from the Halo Infinite technical preview. The iconic Halo announcer can be heard proclaiming “battle royale!”

To answer the question, no one really knows for sure if Halo Infinite will include a battle royale mode. The higher-ups at 343 and Microsoft deny the existence of a battle royale mode, but there’s evidence that says otherwise. And if the demand is there, and it looks like it is, it will be hard for the Halo developers to turn down the opportunity to capitalize on the monumental battle royale trend. After all, the foundation already exists.
