343 Industries and ESL have teamed up with Pilgrim Media Group to create a Halo 5 eSports focused reality TV series.
There isn’t much information out there about what it will involve, when it will air or where you’ll be able to see it but we are sure that Microsoft will make it available to Xbox One owners in some way.
ESL, Pilgrim and Lionsgate previously announced cooperation on eSports programming and Halo 5 eSports reality TV show is the first franchise to emerge from the deal.
Craig Piligian, CEO of Pilgrim commented
We continue to be blown away by the sheer excitement surrounding eSports. Esports and ‘Halo’ fans are exceedingly passionate about gaming and devoted to their favorite titles and franchises — they are exactly the kind of audience we want to produce for.
Kiki Wolfkill, 343 Industries’ studio head of Halo Transmedia, added that the reality series
will bring the intensity and extreme competition of ‘Halo 5: Guardians’ eSports to a television audience. There is no better partner than Pilgrim to give our fans insight into the world of ‘Halo’ eSports.
Halo 5: Guardians is available now for Xbox One.
