In the long run, Halo Infinite and Splitgate will help each other"
Speaking to The Loadout, 1047 CEO Ian Proulx shared the statistic as perceived proof that another high-profile arena shooter in the market could help increase the popularity of its own genre entry, rather than cannibalising the userbase.
“I’m actually glad [Halo Infinite] is out,” he said. “I honestly think that, in the long run, Halo Infinite and Splitgate will help each other. I think that there’s just so much noise and so many battle royales right now, and [these two games] are bringing people over to the arena shooter genre.”
He added: “You know, there’s a lot of kids who have never played Halo, right? There’s a lot of kids who have never played Quake or Unreal Tournament. They’ve never played this kind of game. And getting them exposure to that I think is just a good thing for the genre as a whole.”
