Season 2 of Halo Infinite’s multiplayer will be launching soon, bringing with it new maps, modes, and more, but when 343 Industries recently released a 2022 content roadmap for the shooter, it was met with lukewarm reception at best. With many disappointed at the 2022 roadmap, however, it seems there might be something else in store for the game in the coming months that hasn’t yet been announced.

Support studio Certain Affinity has confirmed that it’s working on expanding Halo Infinite’s multiplayer, and as per journalist Jez Corden, that’s referring to a large-scale battle royale mode that has been in the works for a couple of years at this point. Recently on the Xbox Two podcast (via VGC), Corden dropped some more potential details on what the battle royale mode – which is allegedly codenamed Tatanka – will entail.

According to Corden, Tatanka will feature elements from the single player campaign on top of its battle royale structure, making for an experience that’s “not a traditional battle royale.” This includes PvPvE elements, being able to take over Forward Operating Bases (which would presumably mean the map will have AI-controlled Banished enemies as well), and several side quests and high value targets.

Corden says these will likely serve as “a sort of evolving objective thing”, and might also contribute to players earning points. Interestingly, he also mentions that the mode is being designed as an experience that focuses on bringing in players that haven’t traditionally been Halo fans or players, which aligns with what he has previously reported. Players can also expect duos and trios modes, which has been suggested by recently datamined information as well.

As for when the battle royale mode will launch, Corden says there’s a chance that it’s out towards the end of the year when season 3 launches, though there’s just as much of a chance that it slips into early 2023 to align with season 4.

Halo Infinite is available on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
