343 Industries continues to feed updates to players about the status of Halo: The Master Chief Collection current server and matchmaking issues.
An initial update was deployed earlier today which should solve some issues, however it seems the update did not solve all the games issues.
We have deployed a number of server updates to help improve matchmaking. These updates should expedite search times and allow you to find matches faster and easier. We are actively monitoring data for wait times and will continue to modify as necessary.
For more updates visit the developer forum on the Halo Waypoint website.
Xbox One owners who picked up Halo: The Master Chief Collection may have been disappointed to find out that its matchmaking function is not working as it should.
Players reported lobby wait times as long as three hours just to find a public match. These issues were first reported in Australia and New Zealand on the day the game launched.
“We’re aware of issues some have been having with matchmaking and we’re working around the clock, alongside the Xbox Live team, to address,” the developer shared on Twitter.
343 Industries announced that they plan on rolling out an update today that should fix these problems. More information on these updates can be found on Halo Waypoint.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is out now on Xbox One and comes with Halo: Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4. On top of this, players will have access to every single multiplayer player map released for the respective games.
It seems like games nowadays never have a smooth multiplayer launch. This one especially stings, because so many people have been clamoring to play Halo 2’s multiplayer once again.
