'Hunt: Showdown' will only get a Battle Royale mode if the team could put their own unique spin on the concept.
Developers Crytek would rather focus its efforts on what makes the swamp shooter stand out, and although there's a chance it could look into its own version of the 'Fortnite' game, it's not on the cards just yet.
The company's product manager Angela de Castro told GameSpot: "Right now we're focused on making 'Hunt' as we have it. But we know this is a flexible game.
"Because we're in early access, this is really good for us; we can fine-tune it to what the community wants.
"If we were to make a battle royale mode or if we were to explore different kinds of modes for the game, we would also try to make it unique. We would also try to make it fit the mood and the spirit of 'Hunt'."
Meanwhile, level design director Chris Auty insisted that simply copying other modes a similar vein would be unfair on the game's fans.
He explained: "'Hunt' is a pretty unique game as it is. It sounds a bit arrogant to say that about your own game, but we have had feedback from people saying, 'There's not much else like this at the moment.'
"And we're quite proud of that fact. If we were to introduce a [battle royale] mode, it would have to be our take on it. We wouldn't want to do a cookie cutter, same as everyone else. It would be detrimental to our playerbase."
