With rumours flying around that both Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII and Battlefield II having a Battle Royale mode, an ex Ubisoft developer has suggested that the mode is going to be standard for all games in the future.
Battle Royals is not a game type, it’s a game mode, like death match. It’s easy to build on top of virtually any shooter you already have. It’ll be shipping by default CoD and BF and every other online shooter within a year.

I’d quite like Destiny 2 to get a Battle Royale mode, but as Bungie can’t make the game work with eight players let alone 100 that seems unlikely.
Battle Royale isn’t anything new, PlayStation 3 had MAG but the game mode only became popular thanks to Fortnite and PUBG. Of course a lot of Fortnite’s popularity is due to the fact that it’s also free to play.
