Splyce has one of the best Halo teams in the world—but this squad plans to take their talents to a new game.
Jonathan “Renegade” Willette, Anthony “Shotzzy” Cuevas-Castro, Kevin “Eco” Smith, and Braedon “StelluR” Boettcher will compete in the 2019 season of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Splyce announced today.
Splyce already announced a Call of Duty lineup earlier this month by signing Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi, Daniel “Loony” Loza, Ulysses “Aqua” Silva, and Donovan “Temp” Laroda to compete alongside European veteran Jordan "Jurd" Crowley. But it appears that the organization's Halo team will also represent Splyce in the upcoming Black Ops 4 season.
In a follow-up tweet, Splyce said that the Halo roster will compete in both the Halo Championship Series and the Call of Duty World League in 2019. The organization also said that "both leagues have approved this historic decision." It's unclear at this time who will join Splyce's Halo roster as their fifth player for Black Ops 4.
This team clearly has what it takes to compete at the top of the Halo esports scene, but it'll be interesting to see how they'll perform in a different title. The first major LAN event of the Black Ops 4 season, CWL Las Vegas, begins on Dec. 7.
Update Oct. 11 6:35pm CT: Splyce later tweeted an update, informing fans that Shotzzy is only 17 years old right now.
You must at least 18 years old to compete in CWL tournaments, so Shotzzy won't be participating in Call of Duty events until his 18th birthday later next year.
Update Oct. 12 6:40pm CT: Splyce announced that Shotzzy will be replaced by Ted “TeddyRecKs” Kim and Vlad “Ramby” Sanchez for the 2019 CWL season.
