New Master Chief Collection Patch Work for Today’s Release
Early this week 343 Industries announced that they would be delaying the Halo Championship Series pre-season due to matchmaking issues. With the current issues that have plagued Halo: The Master Chief Collection since launch 343 Industries has been working around the clock developing patches and hotfixes to “ensure that the first pre-season cup is up to the standards of our fans and competitors.” 343 Industries went on to explain through Halo Waypoint that “the first pre-season online cup was originally scheduled for 11.16, however, we’ve decided to postpone until the following week.” This announcement was followed with doubt by the community that a week would be ample time to correct the multitude of issues with the Halo 2 matchmaking. Hard work pays off though and yesterday an announcement on Twitter contained update notes for the latest Master Chief Collection patch content due to release in just a few hours. This upcoming patch is the big answer to the many problems with multiplayer and other features hindering the game from being the tribute to one of the greatest gaming icons of all time.
The Master Chief Collection patch is set to be released in late afternoon PST and will be announced over Twitter and Halo Waypoint. A hefty amount of issues will be resolved with this new content update. UI, matchmaking, gameplay, and other performance tweaks have all been reworked over this last week to prepare for the highly anticipated Championship series this Sunday. The big focus of 343 Industries has been fixing matchmaking issues, but the patch notes have many gameplay enhancements as well. Headshot hitboxes have been enlarged for Halo: CE as well as other tweaks, but nothing was mentioned as to when multiplayer for Halo: CE would be made available.
Obviously many more patches are in the future for The Master Chief Collection and it will still be a few months before this game is 100 percent. But Halo 2: Anniversary will be fully in tack as of today. Hopefully no more issues arise and fans will be able to fully experience this remastered collection.
