2020 is a big year for Halo, as Microsoft is launching Halo Infinite this year for Xbox Series X (and Xbox One and PC). One major pillar of the game is multiplayer, and this includes a significant esports component. Microsoft made a big announcement about this today, confirming that it has partnered with Esports Engine for Halo Infinite’s esports initiatives.
“It is our mission to deliver the best esports program that Halo has ever seen in its 18 year history and we couldn’t think of a better partner to work with than the long time Halo fans and esports veterans at Esports Engine,” Microsoft said in a statement.
Esports Engine is a comprehensive competitive gaming company that organizes the planning, design, and broadcast of esports. CEO Adam Apicella said in a statement he’s excited to build the “best program for players, fans, teams, and tournament operators around the world.”
