TimTheTatman provided an explanation as to why the developers of Halo Infinite missed a golden opportunity by not deciding to create a battle royale game instead.
The launch of Halo Infinite was a complete failure, and ever since then, 343 Studios has been fighting a losing battle to right the ship. Bloomberg reported on January 18 that Microsoft had fired off 10,000 employees, with the majority of layoffs occurring in Bethesda and 343 locations.
In September 2022, in the midst of player criticism, Halo Infinite timmander Bonnie Ross quit 343 Industries. Members of the community have been particularly harsh in their criticism of the game’s poor administration and lack of support. Fans are expecting the worst for the long-running series since there is so much unpredictability.
A former member of the Halo pro-Ninja community called 343’s decision to launch the game without a battle royale option “delusional.” TimTheTatman concurred and suggested that the designers would have been able to avert the catastrophe had they included a battle royale mode.

Youtuber TimTheTatman proposed that if Halo Infinite featured a battle royale option, the game would immediately become the most-watched game on Twitch. On January 25, he went on a rage about Halo Infinite while he was live streaming on Twitch. You want to discuss the failure of the decade, don’t you? It’s called Halo.
The YouTuber said that a Halo Infinite battle royale would have been able to profit on a stale BR landscape, as is currently occurring with Warzone 2, which is currently experiencing a decline in player count.
“With all of these different vehicles, mechanics, and power-ups at your disposal, you can create an unbelievable war royale.” If there was a Halo battle royale right now, players would dominate everything else in the genre if they participated in it because of how the battle royale genre is developing.
Dr. Disrespect has experience with virtually all of the available battle royale video games, and he has hinted on many occasions that he may eventually move on from Warzone 2. He is not the only one who is pleading for a new BR experience that is popular enough to shake things up in the game industry.
TimTheTatman asserted that “Halo failed to come through with the goods.” They were presented with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create an unforgettable BR experience that anyone could immerse themselves in.
Tim summed up his case by pointing out the disparity between the number of players playing Halo Infinite and the number of people watching his live stream, which was 27,000.
