343 Downplays Battle Royale For Halo
Those hoping to wage war in 100 player free-for-all on Halo Arrays might find the latest bit of news coming out of 343 a tad disappointing. During a recent 343 Mixer livestream, developers Jeff Easterling and James Bachici were asked about the possibility of battle royale making its way to the sci-fi shooter that made Xbox a household name.
Easterling replied "I'll tell you right now, the only BR we're really interested in is Battle Rifle." With the battle royale subgenre taking over livestreams and a general audience with the likes of Fortnite and PUBG, and popular series like Call of Duty and Battlefield ramping up to deliver their own versions of the mode, Halo's hold out is a notable one.
