Master Chief Collection Patch Failed and Makes Halo Worse
343 Industries last week released a major content update to fix the many problems that have plagued matchmaking and attempted to boost multiplayer stability. Unfortunately, this Master Chief Collection patch failed to solve these problems and in turn added a few more. The campaign now has acquired numerous bugs after the latest update causing load screen errors and other issues. What was supposed to be Microsoft’s biggest game of the year has turned into nightmare after nightmare as 343 Industries is still unable to make this collaboration live up to the Master Chief’s legacy.
After the Master Chief Collection patch failed to resolve any issues, a response was posted on Halo Waypoint explaining the current issues and plans for future updates. “Our data shows that the CU improved things statistically, but we are aware that far too many are not seeing improvements. We continue to work on these issues, with our primary focus being on matchmaking performance. For now, you will continue to see uneven match-ups and larger than normal team sizes in matchmaking. This is a temporary situation that is caused by the fact that we are allowing more players than normal into a matchmaking session in order to improve overall matching times. We realize this is not ideal, and we will reset those parameters to their expected behavior as soon as our matchmaking improves to a level where players are consistently getting into matches in shorter time frames.”
Yesterday, general manager at Microsoft Game Studios and studio head of 343 Industries, issued another statement promising to make up for the failures of The Master Chief Collection to the fans. “While our team works on continual improvements and towards solutions, my commitment to you is that we will take care of all owners of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Our primary and continued focus is first on fixing the issues at hand. Once we’ve done that, we will detail how we will make this right with our fans.”
A new content update is currently in development and should be released later this week in a continued effort to improve on the new and old issues that have occurred post patch. Xbox has been working closely with 343 Industries to continue to make adjustments to the servers as well as addressing the new campaign issues that have arisen from the new patch. Recently, an Anniversary Rumble playlist was also added into the rotation, which so far has been unaffected by current matchmaking issues. Hopefully before Christmas Halo fans worldwide will be able to receive the experience that they deserve with this franchise’s first appearance on the Xbox One. And if nothing else, it should be exciting to see what surprise that they have in store for fans after the Master Chief Collection patch failed.
