It is pretty common knowledge by now that 343 Industries botched the launch of the Halo Master Chief Collection for the Xbox One late last year. It has taken a long time to fix but the matchmaking patch has finally landed and should hopefully fix the bulk of the multiplayer issues.
Highlights from the update include improvements to party stability, matchmaking times, shot registration and aim assist fixes.
Here are the full patch notes, taken from Halo Waypoint:
- Made a variety of updates to improve matchmaking performance and success rates
- Improved matchmaking search times/time to match
- Improved stability throughout the matchmaking process across all titles.
- Improved party stability
- HALO 2
- Made improvements to multiplayer shot registration
- Improved campaign stability across a variety of levels
- Addressed stability issues for matchmaking and custom games
- Fixed issues around resuming H2A Campaign from “remastered” mode
- Improved medal display consistency
- HALO: CE
- Fixed issues regarding aim assist which resulted in the reticle being pushed away from an enemy
- Improved shot registration consistency between host / client in peer-to-peer custom game matches
- Resolved a variety of UI inconsistencies, including team color randomization, medals, and in-game scoreboard display
This patch should hopefully fix the state of the game, which has faced heavy issues since its launch in November last year.

KitGuru Says: I imagine that many have moved on from The Master Chief Collection since its launch but for those who have held off until the issues were fixed, it might be worth giving a go now.
