This is it – the final weekend of regular season competition in Season 1 of the Halo Championship Series. This weekend, we find out who will make it to PAX East in Boston to compete on the ESL Arena stage for $100,000 in prizing. We recommend you clear your schedule this weekend and get comfortable, because we have two full days of incredible Halo action coming your way.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been completing work on the upcoming content update, which will improve stability, matchmaking, the party and invite system, and more. As we announced previously, this content update includes fundamental changes to the aforementioned systems, and making and validating these changes requires substantial time beyond what was required for prior updates. We’re happy with the progress on the next CU, with really significant progress being made on big and small issues, and we’re being diligent in gameplay and stress testing to ensure that it is a meaningful update.
Late last year, we gave you a first look at the future of Halo multiplayer with the release of the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta. This was a huge endeavor for everyone on the Halo 5: Guardians team and one that we approached with nervous excitement. After all, this was the earliest that we have ever released a beta for a Halo game, coming almost a year before release. Putting a work-in-progress game out in the wild this early was a leap of faith, and something new for our studio. How would fans react? What results would we find?
