The Summer 2016 season of the European Halo Championship Series Open Circuit is an ongoing series of Halo 5: Guardians competition in the North American region. The game is played in 4v4 competition in a series of online tournaments, in a season spanning from June 3rd - July 3, 2016. It is held concurrently with the Pro League.

Overview

The Open Circuit serves as the highest form of competition available to teams not qualified for the Pro League. Similar to the HCS Cup format used in HCS Season 2, the Open Circuit features five open tournaments, starting with an open bracket and ending with the top 8 teams from the open bracket facing the top 8 teams in the standings in the "Legendary Bracket". Following these tournaments, the top teams in the standings have a chance to earn spots in the Fall 2016 Pro League by defeating the bottom two teams from the Summer 2016 season.
