Complexity is returning to Halo after a decade hiatus with a new roster to compete at the upcoming Halo Championship Series Kickoff Major in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Complexity will be signing the former Triggers Down roster who are no strangers to the Complexity organization. The team, which was originally started back in 2005, was sponsored by Complexity back in 2011 when the organization last competed in Halo esports.
“The energy and excitement around Halo Infinite is a testament to the franchise’s staying power and the role it has played in the lives of millions of gamers, including myself,” said Jacob “Hysteria” Reiser. “Halo Infinite provides an exciting new chapter in my career and for the franchise at-large. To make my competitive reprise representing a legacy brand like Complexity is a truly unique opportunity.”
Complexity to perform at Raleigh
Triggers Down has had rocky performances at the qualifier tournaments for Raleigh and will be competing in the open bracket of the event as a result. The tournament will feature over 400 teams all competing for the opportunity to reach the top.
“Halo is a legacy franchise and played a crucial role in esports early development in North America,” said Nick Ridgeway, assistant general manager of Complexity Gaming. “Halo Infinite promises a new golden era for Halo esports. Bringing the Complexity brand back to the scene a decade later with this talented roster is a meaningful moment for the entire organization.”
The Triggers Down roster is composed of Halo talent that has competed across the past decade on various rosters. This includes former retired professional Hysteria, who stepped away from the scene in 2016.
