With Certain Affinity more involved with Halo Infinite, previous rumours of a battle royale mode are looking a lot more likely.
Although Bungie is no longer running the Halo franchise, some of its members have continued to work on it as part of separate company Certain Affinity. Since its founding in 2006, the studio has contributed to development on the multiplayer modes for a number of entries, including The Master Chief Collection.
While it assisted with Halo Infinite’s development as well, announcing its partnership with 343 Industries in August 2020, Certain Affinity recently revealed that the two studios have ‘deepened’ their relationship, implying it will have more involvement going forward.
‘We’ve been part of the Halo franchise for more than 15 years and we’re honoured to say we are deepening our relationship with 343 and have been entrusted with further evolving Halo Infinite in some new and exciting ways,’ reads a Twitter statement.
This can be chalked up to a recent update for the collection, which made some improvements and added new features like campaign customisation for Halo 4 and cross-platform co-op for Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST.
No doubt 343 is hoping to pull players back to Halo Infinite with the long-awaited release of season 2 of the multiplayer scheduled for May 3.
Halo Infinite is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
