Another team has entered the roster mix in preparation for Black Ops 4 and will feature renowned Halo pro Robby ‘Kimbo’ El-Zein/Faulk.
Kimbo, a three-time European Halo Champion and a two-time EU Pro League Champion, has officially announced he will be transitioning to Call of Duty for Black Ops 4.
At only 19 years old, Kimbo has already cemented himself as one of the top Halo players in Europe, but it will be interesting to see how that skill translates to BO4.
There’s already a precedent for Halo pros moving to Call of Duty, the most notable recent switch was Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland who competed in Halo while underage before joining Team Envy last year.
The move was announced through a tweet by Kivi, a player who most recently competed for Fab Games, who appears to be spearheading the search for an organization who needs a full new roster.

In addition to Kimbo, the roster features Martin ‘TypicalNerd’ Black, who retired last March; Shane ‘Addiction’ Tatum, Kivi’s previous teammate at Fab; and Ryan Gray, who competed for Black Forest Games in the 2016 CWL Championships.
Trying to get an organization to pick up a full five-man roster could be a tough proposition, but the players all have a reasonable amount of CoD experience, besides Kimbo, who is well regarded for his Halo play.
The team will have to fight through the open bracket at CWL Las Vegas once the season begins.
