The upcoming update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been described by the developers to contain “the biggest changes to the Matchmaking system yet.” 343 has been steadily updating the shooter to make it more playable after the rocky launch that saw online play filled with issues.
However, it looks as though this massive update will take a bit more longer than expected. A post on Halo Waypoint states, “We’ve identified that additional time and testing is required,”
343 is still evaluating the release date for this update and will deploy it via the Xbox One Preview program. It has been stated through a blog post that the release will be for February, however a fixed date has not been given.
The developers have confirmed that, “continued improvement to the MCC (Master Chief Collection) experience remains our top priority as a studio, and that the patch will focus on Matchmaking search time, match search success, and lobby/party functionality.”
The owners of this game will get the update for free and the Halo: ODST campaign will be free for all, due to the botched launch of one of the Xbox One’s biggest exclusives for 2014,
