Microsoft has big plans for the competitive scene of Halo Infinite. The company announced that the game will feature professional and amateur tournaments in various parts of the world. But the interesting thing is that Mexico will be one of the most important regions because it will be part of the Halo Championship Series (HCS), that is, the official circuit of Halo.
According to their official blog, the 2021/2022 season will start in November and will include 4 regions: North America, Mexico, Europe and New Zealand.
Players from each territory will be able to participate in open qualifiers to earn a spot in professional tournaments. In other words, an amateur team could play a Major – or even the World Cup – if they get good results.
In Mexico there will be online competitions throughout the year, but we will also have a Regional Championship, which will be played in person between July 22 and 24 in the country’s capital.
For those who cannot attend, the good news is that the HCS channels will broadcast hundreds of hours live throughout the season. And if that wasn’t enough, Microsoft has created a channel in Spanish specifically for Mexico.
Another important piece of information is that players will receive drops if they watch the official HCS broadcasts on Twitch. While there are no details on account linking or rewards available yet, Microsoft released this little sneak peek: an armor color inspired by the Master Chief.
It seems that the creators of Halo put all the meat on the grill for the game to once again be one of the largest esports in the world. We’ll see if this legendary FPS manages to regain its old glory, but for now, the future looks promising. To see more news from Halo Infinite, follow this link.
