A new patch for Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been released which provides updates to matchmaking, parties, the roster, and more. Detailed on the Halo website, the patch is now available through the latest content update.

Changes implemented for matchmaking include the following:

  • Made improvements to the reliability of Matchmaking parties.
  • Local split-screen players will now always be on the same team in Halo 2 Matchmaking.
  • Made an update to allow players to use Voice Chat during loading screens in Matchmaking.
  • Made an update to ensure that players are not forced into an incorrect party after encountering an issue in Matchmaking.
  • Resolved an issue where the “Winning Team Won” text was shown in the Carnage Report.

Full details of what the patch changes can be found on the site. A recent patch brought the SWAT playlist back to the game, although it was limited to Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 2 Classic, and Halo 4. An earlier update helped to address matchmaking times, which were reported as excessively lengthy by some users.

343 Industries will release the latest patch for Xbox One shooter Halo: The Master Chief Collection sometime this week. The update aims to address the game’s struggling matchmaking system, among other things, the developer writes on the game’s website.

“The team continues development and testing of upcoming content updates, the next of which will specifically make improvements to the matchmaking system and flow,” 343 said. “This particular update is on track for delivery this week. We will provide more details on the exact ETA, included fixes, and additional upcoming content updates in the near future.”

The Master Chief Collection’s matchmaking system has struggled, mightily at times, since the game’s release on November 11. Microsoft has patched the game numerous times, though issues around long wait times and uneven teams still persist for many.

Microsoft and 343 have repeatedly apologized for the state of the game, pledging to make things right in time. The game’s issues have even led top Microsoft gaming boss, Phil Spencer, to speak out and address the problems with his own personal statements.
