The Halo universe offers the best of singleplayer and multiplayer first-person shooter that video gaming offers. Space-age soldiers fight an interstellar war to keep an alien army, known as the Covenant, at bay. Halo had its heyday between 2007 and 2009 with Halo 3, but Master Chief has attracted a following of fans that helped to make the franchise one of the most recognisable in video gaming. Halo now spans novels, comic books and anime.
The Halo esports scene isn’t quite as developed as other games, but Halo 5: Guardians, Halo 3 and Halo 2 all attract their fair share of players and organisers. The Halo World Championship, with its seven figure prize pool, offers enough incentive to convince Halo’s finest players to take the professional scene seriously.
