The next update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection is in its final stages of testing, 343 Industries has announced, stating it’s being diligent with testing to ensure stability and playability.


The update will make improvements to matchmaking, the party and invite systems, stability, and more.

“As we announced previously, this content update includes fundamental changes to the aforementioned systems, and making and validating these changes requires substantial time beyond what was required for prior updates,” said 343 on Halo Waypoint.

“We’re happy with the progress on the next CU, with significant progress being made on big and small issues, and we’re being diligent in gameplay and stress testing to ensure that it is a meaningful update.”

A release date still hasn’t be decided, but an availability timeframe will be announced in the next status update for the patch.

343 also said it is working on non-default map variant issue which resulted in the lack of Halo 3 SWAT and Team Snipers variants being unavailable in the last featured playlist.

Finally, the post said the team is continuing to “hammer away” at the reimagining of Relic in Halo 2: Anniversary, and posted a piece of concept art for it – which is posted above.
