Halo Championship Series just announced the official esports teams for Halo Infinite, with the game set to release on December 8 of this year.
A franchise as big as Microsoft and 343 Industries’ Halo series is bound to jump into serious esports territory, and now we have confirmation from the developer themselves. Introduced with a flashy and shiny announcement video, the Halo Infinite official esports teams have now been revealed by 343. Check the trailer out below.
In addition to the YouTube video, the Halo Esports official Twitter channel made a separate announcement of their own, revealing the nine esports teams who will be participating in the Halo Championship Series for Halo Infinite.
Halo Infinite esports – a serious venture?
Looking at the list of teams, it’s not hard to see that this push for Halo Infinite esports looks to be very serious indeed.
- FaZe Clan
- G2 esports
- Natus Vincere
- Space Station Gaming
Almost all of those teams have their fingers dipped in various esports pies, and them putting their name forward must have guaranteed something from Microsoft in return.
On the other hand, Halo Infinite is shaping up to be one of the most highly-anticipated releases for this year.
After being delayed numerous times and failing to meet its initial launch date alongside Microsoft’s Xbox Series consoles, Halo Infinite went through a troubled development with many fans of the series fearing that it will not come out in the best state possible.
However, a tech preview released earlier this month seemed to assuage the fears of many, and the news that the multiplayer component of the game will be made available for free was very positively received.
That said, it remains to be seen if Halo Infinite will live up to the enormous hype – esports-wise or otherwise.
