The suggestion did not sit well with the fans, but fellow streamers agreed with him. SypherPK came forward on the original thread and stated his opinion on the matter. He completely agreed with CouRage and also stated that this move could help the Halo franchise. Similar old school multiplayer title like Call of Duty has adapted to the modern trend, and it would great if Halo followed it as well.

The Battle Royale genre is here to stay and Halo can benefit from it greatly, as it will help bring newer fans to the franchise. OpTic Hitch, Nickmercs, also agreed with the thought, as BR mode has become a necessity for modern-day shooters.

Twitter reacts to CouRage’s suggestion on Halo

Angry fans continue to share their disgust regarding the suggestion, as it did not seem suitable. The general thought around the game suggests that Halo does not need to bow to current norms. Fans considered the purity of the Halo franchise is in the strong multiplayer game mode that harnesses fast-paced gunplay, and on the contrary BR mode will slow it down.

This might be the major reason behind such a negative response from the fans that even CouRage did not see coming.

One fan suggested that Halo should remain true to itself and does not need to go through a BR mode. So far, the franchise has not managed to produce a title that is worthy of the series which should be the primary and the only goal for the upcoming game.

One fan even called him out on never streaming the title. He suggested that CouRage is not a real fan, as he never participates in the vibrant Halo Community.

Saturation is indeed a thing that could bore unfavorable news for the franchise. Although, if Microsoft figures out a way to do justice with the genre and Halo franchise, it could be a useful addition.
