Halo: The Master Chief Collection hasn’t had the greatest launch this fall as 343 Industries continues to have matchmaking problems even after releasing a patch last week and even removing some playlists in hopes it would alleviate these issues. A new patch that was designed to resolve these issues was expected to be released on Wednesday, but 343 Industries said today that it has been delayed.
The title update has been pushed back to release sometime “later this week,” according to a blog post on Halo Waypoint. "This week's content update, which was originally scheduled for release this Wednesday, Nov. 19, will now be releasing later this week to allow for additional fixes, as well as the completion of the testing and certification process," says the post.
The upcoming patch is expected to focus on a variety of fixes across the title, which includes “Matchmaking performance issues, general UI and game stability improvements.” The patch will also provide fixes for “game specific issues in Halo: CE, Halo 2, and Halo 2: Anniversary, and more.”
Let’s just hope “later this week” means Thursday, or the latest, Friday. I know a lot of owners of the game have been really upset its matchmaking issues continue to persist weeks after its launch.
