No spam, no fuss; just the latest updates delivered right to you. You’re Good to Go! The Master Chief Collection had a very rocky launch in November An ambitious game that packages together four Halo games and their multiplayer modes, the game struggled mightily out of the gate, with matchmaking times proving extremely lengthy and in some cases not working at all. Microsoft was quick to address the issues and the experience has improved dramatically.
Still, Microsoft sees the issues as a “black eye” for the franchise. Last week, developer announced yet another way it’s making it up to fans and sticking with the game. The Master Chief Collection will receive significant updates and improvements over the next year or longer, including an Xbox One X update and a wider update that will “help bring it forward and modernize many of the game’s systems to take advantage of Xbox platform advancements since its original launch. Halo franchise director Frank O’Connor recently addressed that in a lengthy and thorough blog post on Halo Waypoint via Polygon.
I felt like I had personally let our fans down. I have not spent a single day since the night the game fell down in matchmaking where I didn’t think about it. Additionally, O’Connor acknowledged that “we made mistakes in some of the scenarios we asked for. As a player, I was incredibly excited.

History[ edit ] The second Xbox Live logo, used from until As Microsoft developed the original Xbox console, online gaming was designated as one of the key pillars for the greater Xbox strategy. Sega had made an attempt to capitalize on the ever-growing online gaming scene when it launched the Dreamcast video game console in , including online support as standard, called SegaNet and Dreamarena.
Nevertheless, due to lack of widespread broadband adoption at the time, the Dreamcast shipped with only a dial-up modem while a later-released broadband adapter was neither widely supported nor widely available. Downloadable content was available, though limited in size due to the narrowband connection and the size limitations of a memory card.
The online features, while praised as innovative, were largely considered a failure,[ citation needed ] and the Dreamcast’s immediate competitor, the PlayStation 2 , did not initially ship with built-in networking capabilities. Microsoft, however, hoped that the Xbox would succeed where the Dreamcast had failed. The company determined that intense online gaming required the throughput of a broadband connection and the storage space of a hard disk drive , and thus these features would be vital to the new platform.
This would allow not only for significant downloadable content, such as new levels, maps, weapons, challenges and characters, to be downloaded quickly and stored, but also would make it possible to standardize bandwidth intensive features such as voice communication. Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates both had a vision of making premium download content and add-ons that would attract many new customers. Critics scoffed at it, citing poor broadband adoption at the turn of the century.
Sound-dampened booths and broadband-connected Xbox consoles—featuring an early version of Unreal Championship —demonstrated the service on the show floor. The Epic title was one of the flagship titles for the service, which was slated for a debut on November 15, , marking the anniversary of the Xbox launch. Microsoft announced that 50 Xbox Live titles would be available by the end of Leading up to the launch, Microsoft enlisted several waves of beta testers to improve the service and receive feature feedback.

Public beta called off, but still no release date set. The Master Chief Collection developer Industries has decided not to beta test its next game patch with the Xbox One preview community. The process would have been too time-consuming, said, and required a number of other updates to enable. There’s no word on when the next patch will finally materialise, but the fixes will now be tested internally instead.
Also, it was determined that the additional time and work devoted to the beta would’ve actually postponed the public availability of the content update. Ultimately, this plan will allow us to deliver the smoothest possible experience, and ensure that the next content update becomes available as soon as possible. As stated last week, our current focus and priority remains delivering the upcoming improvements to the matchmaking and party systems, but the team is also working on and prioritizing additional items beyond this, and I look forward to discussing these – a lot more – as we get closer to those updates.
The Master Chief Collection update will contain the largest matchmaking overhaul seen to date, developer Industries has said. But there’s still no confirmed release date for the patch, despite plans for it to be beta tested last week by members of the Xbox One preview program. That beta test was later called off, and Microsoft is now re-evaluating the need for a beta at all. We’ll continue to provide the latest updates here on Waypoint.
Team Snipers and Team Doubles modes are also on ‘s wishlist, although the latter will need to wait for other team creation issues to be fixed. The Master Chief Collection launched for Xbox One last year with numerous matchmaking issues – and has since received a raft of patches as bid to alleviate the problems.
