Halo Infinite’s first official multiplayer tech preview goes live this weekend. During these days, select players will have the opportunity to play multiplayer games in Halo Infinite in multiple ‘Play sessions’. It can also be seen, among other things, in various streams on Twitch.tv, YouTube and Co. This option is also seriously used by a number of big content creators.

“TimTheTatman”, “Summit1g” and Co. As with the first Technical Preview at the beginning of August, where the focus was on fighting against different AI systems, the gameplay was well received by testers as well as in the community.

But the wishes of some go further – and Timothy John Petar, aka ‘TimTheTatman’, joined in: they want to see a Battle Royale mode for Halo Infinite. Development studio 343 Industries has denied it twice in the past, but a new fire is coming to the rumor mill via its Twitter thread.

Because Halo Community Manager Brian Jarrard responded to the “TimTheTatman” tweet with a fun message.

TimTheTatman wrote:

“I know Halo is infinite and owning a BR is a big debate but my bottom line is…Halo has the perfect framework for an INCREDIBLE BR…and as someone who loves BRs it would be amazing to try it.”

Free translation into German:

“I know Halo Infinite and BR are a huge debate, but my bottom line is…Halo has the perfect setup for a BR INCREDIBLE BR…and as someone who loves BRs, it would be great to see it.”

Several members of the community agreed with him, and others pointed to the debate and cancellation of the Battle Royale mode that the studio had already made — at least as we know Battle Royale so far. But the most exciting answer comes from the official at 343 Industries, Brian Jarrard.

He initially responded with “You’re not wrong” before wrote about it:

„I agree that Halo has a great sandbox that would make for a great Battle Royale experience. This tweet. I play and enjoy BR games too. :)”

But as always with controversial topics, prophecies of doom are not far off either. Some users are even complaining about wanting to see the Battle Royale mode in Halo Infinite. Not every new shooter needs a battle royale mode to be good, one user writes, for example. In this regard too, there is certainly a parliamentary group in favor of this thesis.

How do you see that? Would you like to see the Battle Royale mode in Halo Infinite?

As a result, other popular content creators got involved in the debate. Like Zack, known as “Asmongold” and one of the greatest WoW players in history. He shares ‘TimTheTatman’ opinion and sees no reason why Halo Infinite shouldn’t have a Battle Royale mode.

‚Asmungold argue:

„There’s no reason why Halo doesn’t have a bedroom. Halo on Xbox Live was so cool in the 2000’s because it provided a framework for people to make their own game types (zombies, SWAT, etc) to say it shouldn’t be reductive and antithetical to what made Halo great. “

“There’s no reason why Halo can’t have a BR. Halo on Xbox Live was so great in the 2000s because it gave people the setting to create their own game types (zombies, SWAT, etc) to say it was. [keinen Battle Royale haben] It has to be reductive and go against what made Halo great.”

How do you see that? Feel free to discuss with us in the comments! Please note that there is no announcement or specific indication of a possible Battle Royale mode in Halo Infinite. The entire discussion is based on two answers from Halo Community Manager at 343 Industries, Brian Jarrard, who can imagine a battle royal in the Halo Infinite Sandbox as a great combination.
