North American based esports organization Splyce have made a surprising announcement regarding their status in Halo esports.
In tweets put out on December 14, Splyce revealed that they will no longer be competing in the Halo Championship Series, despite having one of the most legendary rosters in the history of the esport.
“Four championships, one legacy,” they tweeted. “Thank you to our players and to the HCS for keeping competitive Halo going, year after year.”
As of now, the fates of the players have not yet been revealed, except for that of Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro, who will be remain with the org as part of their Call of Duty roster.

As for the rest of the players, Splyce will announce further details in the near future, although they should have no issue finding a new org to play for should the players choose to remain in Halo.

Splyce leave Halo esports with a legacy that is second to none in terms of legendary status and pure dominance.
Their exceptional roster placed either first or second in their last 11 official competitions, including first place finishes at MLG Orlando, MLG Columbus, and the Halo World Championship.
Their roster at the latter two events also featured John ‘Skeptical’ Dadi as the Head Coach, and his future also remains uncertain with this announcement.
Despite Shotzzy having been confirmed to be staying on, there is one major issue, which is that he is not yet 18 years old, the minimum age requirement to compete in the CoD World League.
He will then have to wait on the sidelines until his next birthday, which comes on July 4 of next year. As for his role, with Splyce’s roster currently full, there are two clear possibilities.
Either Splyce will make a roster change and replace someone on their main team with Shotzzy, or he will be the team’s substitute player, a new position that all CWL Pro League rosters are required to have.
