Today it was announced that Snipedown, Pistola, Lunchbox and Roy would be joining the Evil Geniuses brand. This is the first time a Halo team will compete under the Evil Geniuses name, console fans will also remember Evil Geniuses picking up the now defunct Call of Duty team earlier this year.
With the new roster, this also marks the return of Roy, Lunchbox and Pistola back together for the first time since 2012 when they were formerly known as Instinct. The trio had multiple tournament wins for Halo: Reach at Major League Gaming. Towey will also be back as their coach for the Halo Championship Series.
