A battle royale game mode is on the wishlist for many Halo Infinite fans, and it looks like it could be coming as soon as 2022 if a report from a reputable video game leaker turns out to be accurate.

Aside from waiting for Halo Infinite Season 2, fans of the sci-fi shooter have been hoping and praying that 343 Industries would add a battle royale mode.

With other leading FPS games such as Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Call of Duty: Warzone all having their own version of battle royale, Halo Infinite players think the game needs one to make the title sustainable.

Rumors and speculation have rapidly grown in the last few days and now it appears that not only is the game getting a BR mode, but it could be coming sooner rather than later.

Battle royale reportedly coming to Halo Infinite in 2022

WindowsCentral journalist Jez Corden had previously claimed on The Xbox Two podcast that a BR was in the works. Now the insider has shared more details on the latest edition of the podcast, indicating when we can expect to see it.

“I think there’s no hard deadline on it, if it’s not ready they’re not going to ship it until possibly Season 4, which is probably why they haven’t fully announced it yet.”

The battle royale mode could easily drop in time for Season 3 then, which is set for November 8, 2022. Meaning that the battle royale component, which has apparently been in development for two years according to Corden, would be available to play in 2022.

A BR mode could shake up Halo Infinite and pull players back in again.

If it doesn’t meet this deadline, then a Season 4 release will probably mean it will be delayed until early 2023.

He claims it will also have single-player elements such as ‘go here and kill a high-value target,’ which sounds like it could be a feature similar to Warzone’s contracts to earn more resources.
