Halo: CE Playlist Update

By -

When we released our most recent update, we mentioned that the team was hard at work on next month’s update, and seeing as April is drawing near, we’re checking in to provide the latest on The Master Chief Collection. Let’s get into it.

Content Updates

We’re pleased to say that this month’s update has normalized and improved matchmaking, and we’re looking forward to delivering additional updates that address top community items and requests. Our next CU, which is on track for delivery in April, will address a variety of issues across the game, including specific improvements to ranking, new quit and betrayal penalties, and more as we prepare to roll out ranks to additional playlists. We’ll provide more about what’s included as we get closer to the release of the CU. As always, full patch notes will be released once the CU becomes available.

Playlist Updates

The team continues to build out additional experiences, and is also working to update team sizes for select playlists. This evening we've rolled out an update for the Halo: CE playlist that changes the team size from 2-3 players to strictly 2 players, and will be monitoring the playlist for a day or two to ensure that the settings are acting as intended. Based on results and feedback, we’ll be looking to update team sizes and player counts across existing and upcoming playlists, including Team Doubles, as we get closer to the next update. Lastly, SWAT and Team Snipers will both make a return into the rotation in the near future, and we’ll continue to evaluate playlist data to determine which playlists become permanent additions.

I’ll be back with the latest on MCC, details about Season 2 of the Halo Championship Series, and more soon. Until then,

Bravo

Today, just like any day, seems like a great day to talk about Halo. I'm glad we're doing this Community Update now, because it's quite possible if we waited another week it would become too much to handle in one post. We've rolled out a new Arena Season in Halo 5, released another update to MCC, added a map to Halo Wars 2, begun final preparations for back-to-back HCS events, unveiled the title of our next Halo novel, and gained two more members for the Halo Infinite Pro Team. Since a simple...
