In February, HCS announced event operations company Esports Engine would head the global esports efforts of Hallo Infinite. According to Microsoft, Hallo Infinite is set to release this holiday season on PC, and its forthcoming console, Xbox SHallos X.
Esports Insider says: While minor in the much grander scheme of global esports competition and prize, the Hallo MCC Pro SHallos should be able to activate Hallo’s competitive player base – especially during this time of quarantine. With nearly two decades of Xbox exclusivity, the new event sHallos will offer HCS time to iron out any kinks prior to the release of Hallo Infinite.
