343 Industries Promising Halo: Master Chief Improvements

Had enough Halo news yet? Well here's some more anyway.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection, has not fared so well with XBox One players. Since launching on November 11, players have experienced wide-spread matchmaking issues - from being unable to locate anyone for a match to unrealistic teams (because 6 vs 1 is completely fair). There are also graphical glitches, lag issues with the servers, and some of the memorable maps from the XBox versions are mysteriously missing.

343 Industries plans to rectify that with a big apology. Anyone who owns the collection and has logged on to play from November 11 to December 19th will receive Halo 3: ODST, a free month of XBox Live Gold, and an exclusive in-game nameplate with avatar. Halo 3: ODST is a full game, which is a fairly big apology note from 343 and Microsoft. For everyone who has the game, but has not gone online or plans to purchase it in the future, the Relic map from Halo 2's multi-player will be made available.

The content will be made available as early as mid-January. There is not concrete date yet, but 343 plans to deliver on those promises. At least for Halo fans, they do come through. They admitted to mistakes and issues with the XBox One launch and they want to make it right.
