After launching into a series of matchmaking woes just yesterday, 343 Industries has announced that a number of server updates will begin rolling out today for Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One.
Those incremental patches will target the issues that players have experienced when trying to find an online match in the compilation’s multiplayer mode, and the studio issued the following statement to appease disgruntled fans.
“We are aware of issues some players have been experiencing with matchmaking and we’re working around the clock, alongside the Xbox Live team, to improve the situation,” a Microsoft spokesperson explained. “We have deployed an update that has shown some improvement, and we continue to optimise the experience.
“The update deployed to matchmaking was done on the server side and does not require an extra download to your Xbox One. This is our top priority and will keep everyone updated regularly as we deploy continued improvements.”
As you can expect, 343 stated that while players can expect a considerable degree of improvements throughout the course of the day, the development team are still working “around the clock” to fully iron out the collection’s online-centric teething problems. As always, we’ll keep you right up to date with the status of the game’s multiplayer component as it appears.
