The presence of a game browser could shape Forge into a game in its own right, as it could potentially become a free online shooter with unlimited maps and modes.

Though there's no news as to how exactly this will work, a 343 Industries spokesperson has since confirmed that the posts on NeoGAF are indeed legitimate, saying "Yes, a join-in-progress custom games browser is currently in development for Halo 5: Forge (Win 10) and Halo 5: Guardians (Xbox One) and is planned for release in a future content update."
