Halo Championship League Launch Delayed

After having announced a new Halo Championship League, 343 Industries said it is delaying the launch: “We know that Halo fans around the world are excited for the launch of the Halo Championship Series, and we are too. The first pre-season online cup was originally scheduled for 11.16, however, we’ve decided to postpone until the following week, as 343 Industries is focused on resolving existing matchmaking issues. This delay will ensure that the first pre-season cup is up to the standards of our fans and competitors.”

Days earlier, IGN News reported that “343 Industries has announced the Halo Championship Series, an official eSports league for competitive Halo players.”

“The league, which will initially focus on Halo 2: Anniversary, is the joint effort of 343 Industries, Twitch, and ESL.”

“’Halo was one of the first console eSports titles to rise to popularity a decade ago,’ Che Chou, Franchise Media Director at 343 Industries, said in the announcement. ‘With the HCS, we’re harnessing that passion and investing back into the community that’s still vibrant today. In addition, our partnerships with ESL and Twitch – both parties with years of invaluable expertise – will help us realize our vision of quality and equality for the HCS.’”
