“We’re confident the player base and ecosystem as a whole will grow across Europe and beyond. We want to be a stalwart part of that growth, and take a community centric approach as we have done across all our other titles,” they added.

Sam Cook, Into the Breach CEO and Founder, said: “Had some good preliminary conversations with devs and others re: the ecosystem and Halo future.

“We’re confident we’re entering at the right time and aim to be at the forefront of an EU resurgence. We have a long-term and educated vision here! See you at the Majors, super psyched.”

Wonderboy added: Extremely proud to be joining Into The Breach for the rest of the 2024 season and beyond.

“We look forward to repaying their comittment and investment in our squad as a new organisation to Halo, with success, wins and hype moments.”
