Dr Disrespect clarifies his statements on recent comments about Halo: Infinite

Dr Disrespect along with many other Halo fans recently watched the campaign trailer for the upcoming title. While reacting to the trailer, Doc continued his long standing rant about the game’s lack of Battle Royale. For the longest of time, Doc has had a gripe with the developers at 343 Industries for not introducing Battle Royale with Halo: Infinite. During his reaction, he even blurted out that the game won’t survive for more than three weeks without the popular mode.

“In order for this game to go longer than three weeks after launch, from a spectating standpoint, it needs a BR.”

This has caused a ruckus in the Halo community with many fuming at Doc for his statements. Fanatics of the series have stated that Halo: Infinite doesn’t require any Battle Royale modes for it to succeed. They have even claimed that Doc only wants Battle Royale in this game to create content with his friends during his streams. Usually, Doc would rarely back off from his statements. But, in a recent stream, he clarified his recent statements by mentioning that he doesn’t believe the game will die because it will have a stellar multiplayer mode.

“For those that just want the Halo: Infinite multiplayer experience and think that I said that the game’s gonna die. No, No, it’s going to be well popular. Don’t get me wrong.”
