According to Halo Waypoint, 343 Industries stated in a blog post, that they planned to cancel the beta for the Halo Master Chief Collection content update. Instead, 343 reported that they would be testing the content update internally. 343 initially stated that it would choose MCC beta testing due to “the scale of the update” and “to ensure the official release is the best possible experience for all players.” 343 offered a full explanation for the beta cancelation:
“After further evaluation, the team has determined that that final testing for the content update will be completed internally, and we will not be conducting a beta test for the next CU. Also, it was determined that the additional time and work devoted to the beta would’ve actually postponed the public availability of the content update. Lastly, there were some added challenges surrounding the CU beta – including an extra series of required updates and rollbacks – that made us take a step back and reexamine the CU beta. Ultimately, this plan will allow us to deliver the smoothest possible experience, and ensure that the next content update becomes available as soon as possible.”
343 Industries did not provide a release date for the Master Chief Collection content update, but 343 did say it was going to continue to concentrate on improving the matchmaking and party systems, as well as other “items.” Hopefully, 343 Industries will be able to fix the ongoing problems of Halo The Master Chief Collection to ensure that there are no more major bugs for future updates.
