3.13.15 - Update

By -

Thank you for your support, patience, and engaged feedback since we launched Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Our most recent content update has normalized and improved matchmaking and the in-game experience for the majority of fans. We at 343 are continuing to work to improve that experience with the Master Chief Collection. Your passion for Halo is what has fueled our team these past months and inspired the project in the first place.          

We have another content update coming in April (we’ll be doing some things on the server side to help improve the experience between updates), and we’ll provide more details as we get closer to launch. We have an ongoing commitment to our fans to make this experience the best it can be. We want fans playing and enjoying this collection for years, and you’ll continue to see improvements to the experience in the coming months to support that goal.

Halo 3: ODST and Relic on the Way

Which brings me to Halo 3: ODST campaign and the Halo 2: Anniversary multiplayer map of Relic. We’re really excited about how these are coming together to expand what Halo: The Master Chief Collection offers to fans. Below you can see a little sneak peek of our latest progress. Additionally, our test and community teams have been running daily playtests on Relic to hammer on the map as much as possible. As we finish things up, we’ll be sharing much more and providing details on launch dates soon.

In closing, thanks again for hanging in there with us. Your comments of support (and frustration) were all heard and kept us burning the midnight oil.
