Halo: The Master Chief Collection multiplayer patch delayed

New, 42 comments

A patch fix designed to resolve severe multiplayer matchmaking problems in Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been delayed, developer 343 Industries announced today.

The title update was due to be released on Wednesday, but has now been pushed back to "later this week," according to a blog post on publisher Microsoft's Halo Waypoint website. The patch is designed to focus on "a variety of fixes across the title, including Matchmaking performance issues, general UI and game stability improvements," that have affected the game since its launch last week.

It also provides fixes for "game specific issues in Halo: CE, Halo 2, and Halo 2: Anniversary, and more," according to the blog post.

"This week's content update, which was originally scheduled for release this Wednesday, Nov. 19, will now be releasing later this week to allow for additional fixes, as well as the completion of the testing and certification process," stated Microsoft.

Microsoft and 343 have been struggling to fix player-reported problems with Halo: The Master Chief Collection since the four-game pack was released.
