Halo Infinite battle royale mode suggested by Japanese listing

Halo Infinite battle royale mode has been detailed in a Japanese listing for the game.

The listing in question is on Microsoft’s own Japanese store and lists Infinite as a “battle royale shooting” game under the category of “Genre”.

Already, 343 Industries is distancing itself from the listing.

“I’ll tell you right now, the only BR we’re interested in is Battle Rifle,” 343’s Jeff Easterling told VG24/7. “The original BR. So, calm yourself.”

The listing is probably something lost in translation, but we’ll keep an eye on events and report back if more information becomes available.

Halo Infinite heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X this holiday season. Over the weekend, it was confirmed that multiplayer will be free-to-play.
