Halo The Master Chief Collection

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is in the great shape right now, packaging the entire series (except Halo 5) into a single package that looks great, runs great, and has a large and thriving community that plays it constantly, not least because of the excellent support it’s received from 343 Industries. The developer has been taking consistent steps to keep improving upon the collection- and they’re not done just yet.

Speaking during a recent Xbox podcast (via @MintBlitz on Twitter), Halo: The Master Chief Collection producer Sean Swindersky said that 343 Industries is considering increasing the maximum player count. Currently, the player count stands at 16, but Swindersky says that though there are factors to take into consideration (such as the performance across all platforms), 343 might potentially be eyeing a player count of 40-50. “That would be wild,” Swindersky added.

Considering how well The Master Chief Collection is doing and how many players are not just sticking with it, but diving in day by day, an improvement as significant as this one would be a big deal. Here’s hoping we can see it come to fruition some time in the future.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is available on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. Meanwhile, Halo Infinite is launching for the same platforms this Holiday.
