343 Industries’ remastered Halo Collection was released earlier this week. The game allows players to revisit past Halo games remastered with the current technology of today.

According to reports, the issues with the game are not just exclusive to multiplayer. 343 Industries announced that on Wednesday they had begun to roll out new updates to their servers to improve matchmaking in Multiplayer. Later that day, 343 claimed that the problems fans were experiencing was not with the game itself, but Xbox Live.

11.12.14 7:04 PM Update: We have identified that our 11.12 morning server-side update has improved matchmaking times for many users, while others are still seeing longer than expected times.

This evening we plan to deploy additional server updates that will improve searching times and increase the likelihood of players finding games. The update will allow more players to enter matches, which may result in larger team sizes (5v5 instead of 4v4, for example). Occasionally, this may result in uneven teams, and we continue to work on this issue.

Currently, there is an existing Xbox Live Services issue that is impacting several Xbox games, including Halo: The Master Chief Collection. As soon as Xbox Live services return to normal, we will deploy our latest server-side update to further improve matchmaking. For up-to-the-minute updates on Xbox Live Service Status, please check the support page here:http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status

We have also confirmed that stats and achievements are not registering, and are working with the Xbox Live team to ensure that these issues are resolved as quickly as possible.As we stated previously, the 343 team continues to work around the clock to provide ongoing improvements to the experience for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Thank you for the ongoing patience and support.

While Microsoft has not directly addressed this issue, there are numerous reports from gamers via social media validating the claim, but it does not cover problems players are having with the campaigns.

So far no word yet when 343 Industries will update the game, but we’ll keep you posted. At least, the glitches and bugs are good for a few laughs.
