Certain Affinity ‘deepens’ her relationship with Halo


GamesBeat Summit 2022 returns with its biggest event for gaming leaders on April 26-28. Reserve your spot here!

One of the most prolific support studios in gaming is devoting more resources to Halo Infinite. Certain Affinity, which has been working on Halo for 15 years, confirmed that it is “deepening” its partnership with developer 343 Industries.

We have been part of the @Halo franchise for over 15 years and we are honored to say that we are deepening our relationship with 343 and entrusting the ever-evolving Halo Infinite in some new and exciting ways. Join us on our journey. https://t.co/fApGobYZS3 pic.twitter.com/XSuS7EtLcq

Certain Affinity did this on social media. As part of its communication with fans, the company also posted a link to its career page. This is part of an ongoing battle for all developers who are short of talent. But it’s also a sign that Certain Affinity will provide long-lasting content for a Halo game that Microsoft aims to keep for the better part of a decade.

This also matches rumors that Certain Affinity is experimenting with a new mode for Halo Infinite. Those rumors still haven’t narrowed down the details, but many fans are speculating that CA could deliver a Battle-royale-style game type to Infinite.

At the same time, Certain Affinity is becoming increasingly independent. The studio is working on its own projects. That includes a Monster Hunter-style game it’s trying to produce in partnership with Xbox. However, the timing of that game and the new Halo content are all unknown.
