Yes, you read that title card right! Almost three long years after its broken release, which included glitches, horrible matchmaking issues and numerous crashes, 343i is finally going to fix Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Let’s get you guys caught up!
- In a post on Halo Waypoint, franchise development director Frank O’Connor updated the community in regards to the MCC.
- In this post, Frank states that the changes to the Xbox Architecture and back-end networking improvements were the catalysts for fixing the MCC.
- He stated multiple reasons for MCC not working: “It may sound simplistic, but MCC was essentially six pretty different game engines strapped together and interlinked with highly complex and highly delicate new systems.” Additionally, Frank states that “we were testing it in an environment that we had set up incorrectly and with some (as we discovered later) faulty assumptions.”
- Lastly, Frank let us know that this fix will apply to the standard Xbox One version and the recently announced Xbox One X updated version coming in 2018.
So, will you guys give The Master Chief Collection a try once it’s updated? Or is it too little too late?
