Mike 'Hastr0' Rufail Believes Treyarch Is At The Forefront Of ESports Game Design Innovation

Forbes -- Mike “Hastr0” Rufail worked closely with Activision and developer Treyarch over the past few years to deliver a game experience designed for eSports. In addition to delivering another $1 billion hit, Call of Duty: Black Ops II is being featured in the Major League Gaming Dallas event this spring and is also the main attraction for Activision’s $1 Million Global Tournament, which will have its Finals in Los Angeles this April.

Rufail will be taking part in Gamers for Giving this weekend in Michigan at Eastern Michigan University. The event is part of Zach Wigal’s charity organization, Gamers Outreach Foundation, and will raise money for hospitalized children and U.S. troops overseas. Rufail will be representing Call of Duty, while David “Walshy” Walsh will be on hand for Halo. Hastr0 talks about the charity event and explains why Treyarch hasn’t received the credit it deserves for pushing eSports forward with Black Ops II in this exclusive interview.
