As revealed a couple of days ago, 343 Industries will be releasing another patch update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection to specifically address the matchmaking issues.
Today, the update has started to roll out and as promised, it fixes some of the major matchmaking problems. Furthermore, it takes care of the team balance issues and brings some stability changes.
From now on, multiplayer matches in The Master Chief Collection will start as soon as the minimum player count has been complete, making the matchmaking time faster.
Some players were experiencing false matches, which created a lot of matchmaking problems and bad sessions’ starts; this issue has been addressed with the update.
Non-actionable error messages have also been removed to allow for more seamless matchmaking flow without any interruption.
A Couple of other fixes made with the latest update are listed below:
- Made an update to the high-level matchmaking flow that will reset lobbies after each match. Moving forward, players and party leaders need to press “B” after the post-game-carnage report, and select a playlist for their next match. This flow is consistent with previous Halo titles.
- Improved the post-game experience to fix an issue that could result in a player getting sent to another player’s lobby, rather than returning to the matchmaking screen.
The update has addressed some high priority problems, and 343 Industries assures that more patches are currently in development and they will be making their way to the players in the near future.
