(Update) ‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ Matchmaking Fix Delayed


Update: The patch to fix a handful of issues for Halo: The Master Chief Collection – most notably matchmaking- will no longer be available on wednesday as originally announced, but instead “later this week.”

Original Story: A client update, which mainly focuses on matchmaking performance, will be available this Wednesday, Executive Producer Dan Ayoub announced today via Halo Waypoint.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been plagued with various problems since it launched, leaving matchmaking virtually useless. There was a minor update that cut down some of the playlist in an effort to streamline online play. The update then recommended players to wait a minimum of four minutes- an eternity in online play- before backing out and attempting to join again. “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,” said Ayoub.

Ayoub went on to say, “We know the current Matchmaking experience is frustrating, and we continue to have various teams working 24/7 to isolate and resolve the issues to provide the best experience as soon as possible. We are going to continue to optimize the matchmaking experience after next week’s content update, and make further adjustments as needed. We thank you for your continued patience.”
