<—- RUMOR ALERT —->
The rumor stems from Nixel Pixel. According to the site, there is a Brandon Layton who is employed by Microsoft Studios and 343 Industries whose LinkedIn account resume details his experience working with bots.
Just because you have experience with bots doesn’t mean that there will be bots in the game.
here are some other things that he could be working with bots
- He is making the “AI” in the game.
- Testing Out Maps
(That’s what beta’s are for :P)
Bots, as we know, stumble into traps pretty easily; using them for testing could help developers to find potential problem areas on maps which could affect gameplay.
