Upcoming Halo Master Chief Collection patch pushed until later this week 'to allow for additional fixes'

Are you a proud owner of Halo The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One? We recently reported that the game was facing some issues, including broken multiplayer matchmaking bugs and a bug that prevents the achievements from unlocking. Thankfully, some of the issues were addressed already while others are still lingering.

An update was set to be released tomorrow to fix the matchmaking bugs. However, the update has been pushed back to later this week, to allow for additional fixes and better testing. Here is what was said on the official Halo support website:

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. 

So there you have it. Sit tight and an update should arrive at the end of this week. This isn’t the first multiplayer issue the title has encountered. The game recently had networking issues which led the developer to delay the dedicated Halo: Combat Evolved multiplayer playlist. But hey, bugs are expected — at least efforts are being made to patch the issues somewhat on time.
