Halo 2: Anniversary's sometimes great campaign is back and completely remastered. Update 3 : The content update has been pushed out as of Thusday, Nov. We believe we have identified the primary issue and plan to issue a matchmaking content update next week. Since launch, we have deployed several server-side updates that have shown some improvement, and we continue to optimize the experience. The updates deployed to matchmaking were done on the server side and do not require any extra downloads to your Xbox One. This is our top priority and will keep everyone updated regularly as we deploy continued improvements.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection Matchmaking Issues Persist
[Updated] It's Not Just You -- 'Halo: The Master Chief Collection' Matchmaking Is Broken
Unfortunately, that track record appears to be at an end, as the prognosis for Halo: The Master Chief Collection's multiplayer isn't looking good. In fact, matchmaking and its underlying functionality invites, party system seem to be completely broken out of the gate. I've spent the last hour trying to successfully enter a multiplayer match via matchmaking, using most of the title's 10 built-in playlists which span the entire Halo multiplayer library of maps and modes. I then partied up with a few press friends and repeated the process, trading off party leader duties just to rule out any weird network connection issues.
