G2 Esports evoked an iconic Halo 3 ad for their roster announcement.
Amid rumors flying around an early Halo Infinite launch Monday, G2 Esports unveiled their starting roster for the Halo Championship Series.
G2 Esports HCS Roster
Echoing the Halo 3 ‘Believe’ trailer, G2 Esports announced their HCS team yesterday. The trailer featured members of the team in the iconic diaspora fighting Covenant soldiers with iconic weapons from the Halo universe.
The roster features:
- Str8 Sick
- Calloussss (Coach)
A mix of veterans (Str8 Sick and Gilkey) and newer talent (Articc and Sabinater), G2 Esports should be a favorite for the top 8 of HCS Raleigh. G2’s CEO Carlos “Ocelote” Rodriguez had this to say about being in the HCS.
Most people in the G2 office get goosebumps whenever the Halo theme plays in the background. We all love this game and are rooting for it to do well. It is our honor to be a HCS partner and to field a team in one of the most legendary video game franchises that’s ever existed. We will do our best to make everybody proud and, more importantly, entertain you in the same way we do in all other esports.Carlos “Ocelote” Rodriguez
Halo Infinite Launch + First Event
G2 Esports will debut at HCS Raleigh later this year. As an HCS Partner team, G2 will have in-game items, event activations on-site, and create content around the game. The launch trailer received universal acclaim after a delayed release, and the roster will look to have a hot start in Raleigh, NC.
Halo Infinite is slated for a December 8th release date, but current rumors peg the release for a surprise November 15th launch. Esports rates these rumors as likely, but without official confirmation is unable to fully confirm a Monday launch.
