Xbox Wire explains: "The 'Halo Championship Series', or HCS, was born of 343 Industries' desire to curate a quality eSports experience - for pro players, enthusiasts, and spectators - by creating a single sanctioning body for Halo. Designed to foster the best environment and platform for competitive multiplayer, the HCS will showcase, sponsor and support existing tournament organizers in the growing landscape of eSports today".

Halo Championship Series' first season will start this month, seeing teams and four hitting the battlefield both online, and offline through LAN events. The winners of these events will earn Halo Championship Series points, and those with the most points will be invited to the finals in March 2015. On November 9, we'll hear more details on the Halo Championship Series, as 32 of the world's top Halo players will be duking it out for a $50,000 prize at the Halo: The Master Chief Collection Launch Invitational Tournament. This tournament starts at 5PM Eastern Time, and will be streamed through the official Halo Twitch channel.
