Studio Certain Affinity , which since 2007 has been involved in the work on games in the Halo series, announced that now its connection with the 343 team will be closer, and its contribution to the development of Halo Infinite will be more significant. The studios were trusted to further develop the game in “new and exciting” directions.
The fact that experienced developers from the studio, which has been cooperating with Microsoft and Xbox for about a decade and a half , was attracted to the development of the game is not surprising. Halo Infinite has been criticized from the start for its slow pace of updates.
As for what directions Certain Affinity is preparing, then, according to the leak , it will be a new mode under the working title Tatanka. It’s going to have elements of a battle royale, like a shrinking map and respawn keys.
In addition, it was recently revealed that Microsoft and Certain Affinity are working on an Xbox exclusive under the working title Project Suerte . According to Jeff Grubb, this is a Monster Hunter-style action game that will be released only on Xbox and Windows PC.
