Developer Certain Affinity is rumoured to be working on a brand new multiplayer mode for Halo Infinite, reportedly under the codename ‘Tatanka’. Apparently, the mode would be welcoming to new players, targeting more casual players.
According to Windows Central, the mode being rustled up by Certain Affinity - a studio that has served in a support capacity on games like Halo Infinite and any number of Call of Duty titles - could be a few months away, and is set to be less competitively demanding than staple modes like Arena and Big Team Battle.
Speculation points to the new mode potentially being a PvE Horde mode akin to Halo's Firefight mode, or possibly something like Warzone from Halo 5: Guardians. While battle royale might seem like an obvious choice, developer 343 Industries ruling this out back in 2018 makes that seem like something of an outside bet.
Rumours abound that the new mode could tie-in to Halo Infinite's Forge mode, which is planned to arrive alongside Campaign co-op as part of Season Two in May, with user-generated content to form part of the experience. It's also believed that it will use cosmetics from Halo Infinite's current Battle Pass, as well as perhaps having its own progression system, to boot.
In the meantime, Certain Affinity has also recently been connected to a rumoured ‘Monster Hunter-like’ project, reportedly exclusive to Xbox - seems the studio might be a little busy, then.
