Recently, the Halo Infinite Esports lead Tashi confirmed that there will not only be esports for the new Halo game but also one coming this year in hopes that it will be safer later. Last year because of the game’s delay, the Halo esports team had to reimagine their plans to accommodate the setback. To fill the competitive gap and content, they announced the Halo 5 and Master Chief Collection Pro Series for late 2020 causing some fans to question Halo Infinite’s esports events. While there is little information, Tashi mentioned that there will be more updates coming this summer, but the event and venue have been set. The event will be designed by Esports Engine who specialize in organizing these competitions. Halo Infinite is set to be released later this year on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. It will also be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one.
