343 Industries has released yet another patch to Xbox One users to try and fix the unbelievable number of ongoing problems that Master Chief Collection players have been suffering with since it launched early last month.

This new patch is now live on Xbox One and you should be prompted to download the update the next time you boot up the game and it’s focused on the matchmaking issues specifically. Another update is aimed at being released early next week which will hopefully address the unbalanced team issues.

Full patch notes can be found below, thanks Halo Waypoint:

  • Made a change to allow for matches to start once minimum player counts are met, allowing for faster matching times.
  • Made an update to resolve issues that caused false matches to be created, which resulted in a variety of matchmaking issues, including slow matchmaking and bad session starts.
  • Streamlined the process for maintaining party continuity through the matchmaking process.
  • Made an update to the high-level matchmaking flow that will reset lobbies after each match. Moving forward, players and party leaders need to press “B” after the post-game-carnage report, and select a playlist for their next match. This flow is consistent with previous Halo titles.
  • Improved user experience through removal of non-actionable error messages. This will allow for a more seamless matchmaking flow with less interruption and confusion.
  • Improved the post-game experience to fix an issue that could result in a player getting sent to another player’s lobby, rather than returning to the matchmaking screen.

Have you downloaded the update? Is it making finding a game easier? Please let us know in the comments!
