24. January 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

The Halo Championship Series (HCS) is gearing up for an unprecedented year in 2024, as revealed by 343 Industries, the developer behind Halo Infinite.

The new HCS season, dubbed ‘Year 3’, is set to undergo significant changes, including an increase in the number of Majors, events organized by partner teams, and the highly anticipated first Halo Infinite Major in Europe.

Evolving the Halo Championship Series

  • Increased Number of Majors: This year, the HCS will feature four Major tournaments, a substantial increase from the two held last year. The expansion aligns with the growing popularity and competitive landscape of the Halo esports scene.
  • Team-Organized Majors: Each Major will be hosted by a different partner team, a decision influenced by the positive fan response to last year’s events. This approach aims to diversify the tournament experience and bring unique flavors to each event.
