This patch was scheduled to correct matchmaking and offer other improvements.
Much like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, 343 Industries’ Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been suffering from severe online issues. Unlike the lag plaguing the former though, The Master Chief Collection has been mostly suffering problems with players unable to access many of the multiplayer modes. Those who have played online have reported issues with the matchmaking. Though the developer is working 24/7 on fixes, a patch designed for the matchmaking issues has been delayed.
As the developer stated on its official site, “This week’s content update, which was originally scheduled for release this Wednesday, 11/19, will now be releasing later this week to allow for additional fixes, as well as the completion of the testing and certification process.
“This content update includes a variety of fixes across the title, including Matchmaking performance issues, general UI and game stability improvements, as well as fixes for game-game specific issues in Halo: CE, Halo 2, and Halo 2: Anniversary, and more. The full patch notes will be posted later this week, in advance of the content update release.”
Hopefully the patch will spell a definitive end for the issues. What are your thoughts on the delay? Let us know in the comments.
