Halo: The Master Chief Collection is kind of a big deal. Kind of a big deal, to the point that when the matchmaking barely works and the game is bugged to hell on launch, the creators feel the need to apologize.
Executive Producer of Halo: MCC Dan Ayoub apologized in an official statement and announced that several updates were being released to fix the matchmaking issues. “From everyone at 343 Industries, we are truly sorry and feel your frustration,” said Ayoub. “You deserve better and we are working day and night to find solutions as quickly as possible, with our first priority focused on matchmaking improvements.” The matchmaking fixes will be issued in server side updates, so there won’t be any visible update to the player.
Other bugs planning on being fixed are ones that are preventing achievements from being unlocked. Other “community priorities” are also being addressed. While it’s tempting to be snarky and say this would all be better if Halo: The Master Chief Collection was released finished, and it would be, it’s nice to see a developer so frankly address the issues.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is available now on Xbox One.
