The first-ever Halo Infinite beta is currently wrapping up, and Halo players on PC and Xbox are enjoying the fun multiplayer offering in this weekend’s technical preview. However, a datamine of the beta by determined fans has uncovered a voice file that strongly suggests that a Halo Infinite battle royale mode may be coming.
The beta datamine has already revealed some major details fans weren’t previously aware of, including the existence of multiple single-player/co-op campaigns – which at least had been hinted at by the dev team – and a terrifyingly large amount of story spoilers, including plot moments, mission details, and at least one twist.
This new leak is probably the simplest, and yet the most far-reaching in its implications. Originally posted on ResetEra, it’s a simple voice file recording. The voice is that of Halo Infinite’s multiplayer announcer, where they say the game mode at a match start. It’s only two words, but these two words are enough to put the frighteners into any Halo fan – “battle royale”.
