Halo: The Master Chief Collection Will Get A Matchmaking Patch Today

At approximately 10:00 AM PST, 343 Industries will release a matchmaking patch that will hopefully take care of issues currently plaguing Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

While the actual timetable for the patch’s release was “this morning” Pacific time, no updates will be given until the designated time. Some people have talked about successfully being able to play Halo: The Master Chief Collection multiplayer this morning while others have continued to experience problems.

For what it’s worth, I just finished a round of Halo 2 Anniversary with no problems. I wasn’t able to stay in a post-game lobby with the same players, however. I’m not sure if this is intended by design or an issue due to the matchmaking troubles. A second game, however, was met with connection issues a minute into the match.

It should be noted that this patch does not appear to bring ranked play to other game modes. If you’re looking for “serious” action, you’re going to have to stick with the Halo 2 Anniversary mode.

It looks like the troubles are slowly but surely getting behind us. Kudos to 343 Industries for working quickly to fix issues. Now if we can only work on playing a map that isn’t Stonewatch.

Or a mode that isn’t Team Battle Rifles.
