The Halo Master Chief Collection had an incredibly rocky start at launch, with numerous reported multiplayer issues that consistently plagued multiplayer for all of the titles. After apologies, patches, more apologies, more patches, and plenty of free content, it seems like things have finally started to settle down for the Master Chief Collection.
That said, 343 Industries aren’t just sitting on their hands. The Master Chief Collection has just received another new patch offering further multiplayer improvements, including:
- Made a variety of updates to improve matchmaking performance and success rates
- Improved matchmaking search times/time to match
- Improved stability throughout the matchmaking process across all titles
- Made improvements to multiplayer shot registration (for Halo 2)
- Addressed stability issues for matchmaking and custom games (for Halo 2)
- Improved shot registration consistency between host / client in peer-to-peer custom game matches (for Halo: Combat Evolved)
With all of these additional fixes, one can hope that all of the multiplayer woes plaguing the Chief have been resolved. Full list of patch notes can be found on the Halo Waypoint site.
