- The alleged game would've brought Certain Affinity deeper into Halo and given Xbox an exclusive battle royale of its own.
Known as Project Tatanka, it was allegedly at work by series co-studio Certain Affinity. The developer has previously done support work for several games in the series, including Halo Infinite.
While never fully confirmed, the studio previously teased it was making something to evolve Infinite in "new and exciting ways."
343 previously admitted Infinite's live service foray had some early stumbles. A battle royale would've likely further complicated things, and the studio wouldn't be the first to cut bait on multiplayer projects lately.
Game Developer has reached out to Microsoft for comment and will update when a response is given.
