Marring the otherwise successful launch of Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been the multiplayer matchmaking issues that have plagued gamers since release. Now, there’s more bad news as 343 Industries has been forced to delay a patch intended to fix some of the issues.
Various issues within the game’s net code have locked players out of the multiplayer altogether. On a post on the official Halo website, 343 Industries wrote “This week’s content update, which was originally scheduled for release this Wednesday, 11/19, will now be releasing later this week to allow for additional fixes, as well as the completion of the testing and certification process.
“This content update includes a variety of fixes across the title, including Matchmaking performance issues, general UI and game stability improvements, as well as fixes for game-game specific issues in Halo: CE, Halo 2, and Halo 2: Anniversary, and more. The full patch notes will be posted later this week, in advance of the content update release.”
Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has already said that he is “disappointed” with the matchmaking issues.
