Update in final stages of testing but a release date has yet to be locked down.
343 Industries has been working to fix the various errors and bugs plaguing Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s multiplayer experience. Though initially teasing a beta test for the next update, the developer went back on said plans to push the update out quicker.
In a recent community update though, it seems there’s still no definitive time frame for when the update will go live. “As we announced previously, this content update includes fundamental changes to the aforementioned systems, and making and validating these changes requires substantial time beyond what was required for prior updates. We’re happy with the progress on the next CU, with significant progress being made on big and small issues, and we’re being diligent in gameplay and stress testing to ensure that it is a meaningful update.
“While we haven’t yet locked an exact release date of this CU, the work is in its final stages of testing and bug squashing is well underway. The next time we communicate regarding the status of the upcoming CU, we will provide a definitive time frame for its availability.”
Will this be enough to bring back fans scorned by the game’s 3 month long multiplayer cluster-f**k? That remains to be seen so stay tuned for more information.
