New era of Halo eSports is coming
Microsoft has revealed nine partnered teams for the launch of Halo Infinite, coming later this year.
The nine teams that are included in the relaunch of the Halo Championship Series are Cloud9, Envy, eUnited, FaZe Clan, Fnatic, G2 Esports, Natus Vincere, Sentinels, and Spacestation Gaming.
Halo Infinite is set to release on Dec. 8 with the single-player campaign and multiplayer modes available. Halo has been a big esports title in the past, but it began to struggle for viewers around the release of Halo 4 and Halo: Reach.
A relaunch of the Halo Championship Series was attempted when Halo 5 was released and was dubbed the Halo 5 Pro Series, which had a prize pool of $63,000 across North America, Latin America, EMEA, and Australia and New Zealand. The competitive series went off without much fanfare and the Halo esports scene remained relatively inactive. So lets hope this revives this once great scene.
