In other news, it has been revealed that the REQ bundles in Halo 5 have managed to push the total prize pool for the Halo World Championship to $2.5 million. This means that the prize pool awarded to the first place team will be $1 million.
According to Xbox, the $1 million first place prize is the biggest in console eSports history and additionally this $1 million first place prize is as big as the initial prize pool was before the REQ pack microtransactions helped add an extra $1.5 million. The prize pool has now been locked in so it will not budge any more past the current $2.5 million.
