Unlike past titles, Halo Infinite’s esport scene has an official partnership program where organizations can apply for revenue-sharing opportunities such as in-game skins and promotions. These teams generally represent the best talent in the game and since their inclusion have become a large part of the esports narrative.

In total nine organizations have been accepted into the program:

  • FaZe Clan
  • OpTic Gaming / Team Envy
  • Cloud9
  • eUnited
  • Fnatic
  • G2 Esports
  • NAVI
  • Sentinels
  • Spacestation Gaming

With more teams poised to be announced in June following a month-long application window for the program that took place in March. After what the Halo Championship Series, or HCS, described as "record viewership, participation, and attendance since launch" it seems very likely that a number of high-profile organizations will be joining the game in the future.
