Halo: MCC Will Get Updated Matchmaking, Xbox One X Enhancements

By Kevin Tavore, 1 year ago
We all remember Halo: The Master Chief Collection. It came out what seems like ages ago to mixed reception. On one hand, it had all the trappings of the ultimate Halo experience. The first four games were there in HD, two of them were remastered, and you could play any Halo's multiplayer in all its glory. The problem was...it didn't work very well. 343 made improvements over the years but hasn't released a patch for the game in years and the game was assumed to be retired. Turns out that's not quite true.

Announced on a Halo live stream today, 343 confirmed the title would indeed be receiving a new patch. The primary goal of that new patch would be to add improved Xbox One matchmaking features to the game. While the population isn't as high as it once was, there are still players playing every day so the update will be quite welcome to fans. Additionally, the game has been confirmed to receive an Xbox One X enhancement patch. The details on that are slim — we only know it exists — but the latest tweet at least confirms it's coming.

As the tweet says, the patch is coming in 2018. Until then, we'll have to rely on speculation to guess the full extent of the updates.
