Certain Affinity Hints At Halo Infinite’s Rumored BR Project Tatanka

The unannounced project's release window is still not officially confirmed.

Certain Affinity is a support game studio and has played a colossal part in the development of Halo games in the past. The team also played a prominent role in developing the latest installment, Halo Infinite. The developers have been just as busy even after release to ensure a smooth experience for the loyal fandom. 

Certain Affinity is currently brewing multiple updates for Halo Infinite, Forge Mode, and a rumored unannounced battle royale mode dubbed Project Tatanka. Project Tatanka is still officially unannounced, but a recent interview may have confirmed it. It is rumored to be a battle royale experience that is still in development after two years.

Major Takeaway:

  • Halo Infinite‘s resident and COO, Paul Sams, appeared in an interview to discuss the future of Halo Infinite.
  • Paul iterated that an unannounced Halo Infinite project has been in the works for two years, and 100 developers are working on it.

The COO and president of Certain Affinity, Paul Sims, partook in an interview to elaborate on the future goals of Halo Infinite. Paul cited that the team is “doing something unannounced,” and they are doing “lead development on that unannounced thing, from conception and design.” 

The new Halo project the studio has been brewing is big and new for the franchise.It’s the studio’s most extensive project; it appears to be the biggest of the three. Paul stated, “That’s our single largest project of our three projects currently. We have close to 100 developers working on that.

The team has evidently been working on it “for more than two years now.” Unfortunately, more details were not unveiled because of potential NDAs. Paul mentioned, “they’re very prescriptive about what we can say,….But I can’t say any more about it.” the exact project only appears to be the highly fabled Battle Royale Project Tatanka.

Halo Forge is well-known in the community and does not appear to be discussed here. All the signals point toward the heavily-rumored Project Tatanka, which already sounded like a very ambitious mode, and the long development period confirms it. The comments made by Paul Sims have indirectly verified the rumored project.

Initially released in 2021, Halo Infinite is a definite upgrade over its earlier renditions in terms of high-end graphics and smooth gameplay. The stellar first-person shooter continues the chronicles of Master Chief and his retaliation against the enemy Banished on the Forerunner ringworld Zeta Halo.

The legacy of Halo Infinite is not a smooth one; although the title features a captivating single-player campaign and polished gameplay with high-graphics fidelity, the lack of content resulted in heaps of criticism. Most of the community even declared the game dead, but developers are hard at work to bring more content to the game.

Halo Infinite Forge mode and the battle royale project, codenamed Project Tatanka, are expected to breathe a new life into the struggling game. The title might have reached new heights if these modes were released alongside the main game in 2021. However, they are anticipated to serve as redeeming factors for Halo Infinite.
