Halo is famous for its Forge map, which allows players to create all manner of custom game modes and maps, including Star Wars podracing and beer pong. Earlier this year, 343 Industries confirmed that Forge will not launch with Halo Infinite in December but is instead coming sometime later, alongside campaign co-op, which will also miss release and launch later in the future.
Responding to a tweet from KFC’s gaming account to “trigger an entire gaming fanbase with one sentence,” the Splitgate account replied with a message about Forge. “Splitgate will have Forge mode before Halo Infinite.
1047 Games went on to say that one of its goals with Splitgate is to “help bring back the Arena Shooter genre we loved growing up with.” The studio added: “We’re huge fans of classic Halo here at 1047 Games and are genuinely excited to see what Halo Infnite will bring back to the arena!”
Splitgate, the popular fusion of Halo and Portal, might eventually be expanding beyond its arena influences. While the developers behind the game still aim to make it the best game in the arena shooter genre, a battle royale mode isn’t out of the question.
Now that Splitgate developer 1047 Games is flush with investment cash, the Halo-meets-Portal shooter could expand into the battle royale genre one day.
When asked on Twitter if fans could expect to see some last-person standing action in the near future the Splitgate account replied that it has no plans yet for a battle royale mode, but the idea isn’t off the table
