On November 9th, GameSquare Esports announced its subsidiary, Complexity Gaming, had joined the Halo Championship Series as a partner team. As a result of this deal, Complexity will work alongside 343 Industries to generate in-game items and equipment. On top of that, the two sides will collaborate with each other to host future HCS events.
“Halo is a historic franchise with a highly engaged global fanbase that adds to Complexity’s large following, which has grown tenfold in the past 18 months,” said Justin Kenna, the CEO of GameSquare. “Growing our audience through authentic and engaging opportunities like the Halo Championship Series is helping us to connect more brands with gaming and esports fans. Competition is at the core of Complexity. Our teams and content creators are reaching more people than ever before, and brands are taking notice. We are proud to have been selected to join HCS and we are excited by the many opportunities that are available to partner teams.”
The 2022 Halo World Championship was recently held in Seattle, Washington. That event saw OpTic Gaming take home first place and 40% of the competition’s $1 million prize pool ($400,000).
