, Certain Affinity president and COO Paul Sams teased a large Halo project that fit the battle royale bill.

“The biggest thing we’re doing that’s public right now, for more than two years now we’ve been working on Halo Infinite doing something that – they’re very prescriptive about what we can say,” Sams said.

But I can’t say any more about it. That’s our single largest project of our three projects currently. We have close to 100 developers working on that.”

All this comes at an uncertain time for the Halo franchise following the disappointing performance of Halo Infinite. Bloomberg reported Halo developer 343 had pivoted to Epic’s Unreal Engine for future games in the series. It has yet to reveal the future of the series. Meanwhile, Season 2 of the
