Splitgate Devs Say 'Don't Hold Your Breath' For A Battle Royale Mode

Splitgate is continuing to be a worldwide phenomenon. It even secured a spot during Gamescom Opening Night Live when Season Zero of the game was announced and subsequently launched. With such success, it's obviously gaining a wide pool of players, some of which are requesting a battle royale mode be added in the future. For now though, it doesn't seem like something the developers at 1047 Games are keen on doing.

Responding to a fan on Twitter, the team said they have "no plans for a Battle Royale on the horizon", and while they have a "never-say-never philosophy for most features", it slips into the "don't hold your breath category".

Despite the requests, a surprising number of fans actually seem to want the opposite instead. The most liked response is somebody requesting the team doesn't add one in at all, with a few other replies echoing that opinion.

It's quite refreshing to have a multiplayer game that isn't conforming to modern multiplayer standards. There's something about Splitgate that feels very retro and reminds us of those Xbox 360 days where we'd be up until the early hours of the morning playing Halo 3. As long as it keeps that spirit, we'll probably be sticking around.
