From mostly racing games, Quadrant is entering the world of competitive FPS by signing a new Halo Infinite roster just before a major event.
Quadrant Signs Halo Roster
Team Quadrant is exploring new waters, now entering professional Halo tournaments. The British organization is founded and owned by Formula 1 racing driver Lando Norris and it recently signed a new professional Halo team.
The organization’s new roster will be made up of four French players who came in second place at the HCS Europe Major Raleigh 2021 Qualifier this month. They are called TchiK, SLG, Nurix, and Fragxr. The four have also placed second in both Halo Europe Open Series events this year.
Norris, the owner of the organization, said that he’s loved watching Halo Infinite since its launch last month and that’s why he decided to sign one of Europe’s most talented rosters. “I’ve set the goals high and the team is just as passionate as I am, so let’s go get our first win.”
The signing of the players comes right before the HCS Kickoff Major Raleigh 2021 which will take place this week from December 17 to 19. There will be a second chance for teams who failed to qualify for the group stage. They will be able to face off against each other in the open bracket for the chance to become one of 16 squads to join the championship bracket.
Team Quadrant is a rather young organization, having been formed just last year by the Formula 1 racer Lando Norris. He is quite a passionate gamer and esports enjoyer as well, having more than a million followers on twitch, where he often aptly streams racing sims.
Norris chose the name Quadrant to represent the four pillars that represent the organization – gaming, content, apparel, and racing. He is the second Formula One driver to enter the world of esports, after Romain Grojean who launched his R8G eSports in April last year.
Quadrant’s new Halo Infinite roster comes soon after 343 Industries confirmed it will tackle many of the game’s problems, that range from rampaging hackers to paywalled content. It is unclear if the organization will expand into other competitive games, but this might largely depend on how the French players perform at the Raleigh 2021.
