In a recent Halowaypont blogpost, 343 announced that prior to the launch of Halo Infinite, nine top-tier organizations across NA and EU will become launch partners for the Halo Championship Series.

Halo Infinite is arguably one of the most anticipated flagship titles of 2021. Originally planned to be launched alongside the Xbox Series X|S back in November 2020, the game was delayed for more than a year.

Halo Infinite is a soft reboot of the series, which takes place after the cliffhanger ending of Halo 5 Guardian. This will take the franchise to installation 07 otherwise known as Zeta Halo.

Players will once again take on the role of John 117 aka Master Chief, and fight against the Brutes in a completely open world.

Why does Halo Championship Series have the potential to be one of the biggest worldwide tournaments?

Since the announcement of Halo Infinite, 343 has taken a lot of wise steps to showcase the game's best. Suffice to say, these measures are conducive to making Halo a juggernaut in top-tier esports.

343 has decided to make the Halo multiplayer experience free-to-play from the very first day. Furthermore, the studio has confirmed simultaneous releases on both console and PC. These moves have made Halo Infinite a fun and approachable title.

However, an issue might arise concerning the high-demand specs for Halo Infinite, which launches on 8 December 2021. It will be interesting to keep an eye on the development of Halo Infinite as an esports title.
