Instead of a Battle Royale mode, Microsoft’s upcoming Halo Infinite might very well feature a ‘big team battle 2.0' mode.
At least, that’s what Microsoft insider Klobrille writes on Twitter. The insider has proven to be a reliable source when it comes to Xbox-related info. Recently, Klobrille already talked about Halo Infinite and its release frame, and the insider has now shared some more interesting tidbits about 343’s next Halo installment.
Over the past few months, there have been quite a few rumors suggesting that that Infinite will offer a Battle Royale mode, but according to 343 Industries, these rumors are unfounded.
According to Klobrille, instead of the debunked Battle Royale mode, Infinite will offer a “Big Team Battle 2.0” instead, complete with squad spawning, massive vehicular combat, and more.
“To my limited knowledge, instead the team is creating a “Big Team Battle 2.0” mode, which is a better fit for Halo, including massively enhanced vehicular combat, squad spawning, incoming Pelican drops, and many more surprises”, the insider wrote in a now-deleted tweet.
Halo once was a series about setting trends, not following them. The fact 343 tries to go back to this principle is a good thing.
Forge will be MASSIVELY expanded on in Halo Infinite. I’m sure if players would want to see a Halo Battle Royale mode, players could just create it.

Quite interesting, but as with all rumors and ‘leaks’, please take this information with a pinch of salt for now. Still, Klobrille has proven to be a reliable source in the past.
