Since its release on November 11th, Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been riddled with matchmaking issues that are making longtime fans of the series frustrated with their purchase. Matchmaking performance in general has been shaky, and players have been finding themselves waiting far too long to get into matches for their favorite Halo games.
343 Industries recently addressed these issues and promised a fix in a forum post that was published yesterday on the Halo Waypoint website. According to Executive Producer Dan Ayoub, the team is hard at work implementing fixes and hopes to have issues resolved by November 19th (this upcoming Wednesday).
“Looking at our data logs, server-side adjustments that we have made over the past 24 hours have shown a 20% increase in server connectivity. However, we are well aware that performance is not where it needs to be. Resolving Matchmaking issues also requires client-side fixes, which require a content update. The client side update, which focuses on Matchmaking performance, non-matchmaking bugs, and a variety of title-specific issues, has been completed and is going through testing and certification. We are currently targeting a release of Wednesday 11/19 for this content update.”
Halo: Master Chief Collection is currently available on the Xbox One.
