A leaked screenshot has revived rumors of a Halo Battle Royale, reportedly using the BR’s codename and references to a ‘last player standing’ mode.
Halo Battle Royale rumors have been circulating around the 343 title for a while now. While aspects of Halo Infinite were praised – the readiness of the esports scene, for example – the game’s release was largely viewed as disappointing, as bugs, glitches and a lack of favorite modes dominated the player’s agenda.
Despite the disappointment, fans of the futuristic FPS title had quiet hopes for a battle royale to allay their worries.
Like Warzone 2, it’s reportedly slated for release in late 2022, but unlike its CoD counterpart, it hasn’t been confirmed or detailed by the developers yet. However, that could change as new details surface through leaks.
New Halo Leak Sheds More Light on BR Release and Modes
In a tweet dated August 19, Twitter’s HaloHub shared a leaked image that appears to show battle royale lists in an in-game menu.
The Battle Royale has reportedly been given the codename ‘Tatanka’, which features heavily in the apparent leak.
It shows multiple versions of Tatanka, including Triples, Quads, and FFA. Not only do they fit the classic versions of battle royale players are used to, but the description present also fits the BR formula.
It reads, “Welcome to the ring. Come out victorious by being the last player standing.”
The build shown is clearly an early draft, but players also pointed to the size of the list, suggesting plenty of modes in the works.
It will only add to the excitement of existing players, with the only thing missing from Halo’s Battle Royale official 343 confirmation.
We can expect this to come soon if the 2022 release date proves accurate, but like all leaks, it’s worth taking this one with a grain of salt until we see more definitive evidence.
