Mange er sikkert klar over at det allerede neste helg avholdes en stor Halo 3 og Halo 1-turnering i St. Louis Missouri, UGC Halo Classic. Men det er ikke den eneste klassiske Haloturneringen som vil bli spilt i USA i 2019. I dag ble to nye turneringer annonsert, begge støtte av 343 Industries sitt nye "grasrotprogram" for turneringsarrangører: HCS Invitational (Texas) og Dramhack Dallas.

HCS invitational er en liten turnering, hvor bare de seks beste Halo 3-lagene fra UCG Halo Classic får delta:

Today, we’re excited to announce the initial details of the first official HCS event of 2019. The event will take place in Austin, Texas on March 15-17. The main portion of the Invitational will be a 6-team showdown between the Top 6 placing teams that compete at the Halo Classic by UGC. Each qualifying player and coach will be flown out to Austin, Texas to duke it out on the maintage on Halo 3. Additionally, we’ll be looking to host several exhibition matches to continue the fun with lucky Microsoft Store competitors, content creators, pro players, as well as fans in attendance.

Dreamhack Dallas 2019 er et gigantisk LAN, som denne gangen også vil ha en Halo 3-turnering:
