The HCS Pro League Invitational 2016 served as the kickoff event of the Summer 2016 North American HCS Pro League season, taking place at PAX East 2016 in Boston, Massachusetts on April 24th, 2016. Halo 5: Guardians was played in 4v4 competition.
With only four teams invited, the Invitational determined the second qualifying team for the inaugural North American HCS Pro League, the first being Halo World Championship 2016 winners Counter Logic Gaming. The four teams invited were decided by the fact that they each contained a former member of Team Allegiance, the second-place team at Halo World Championship 2016.
