'Halo: The Master Chief Collection' Is Finally Getting Fixed… In 2018

I'm a Halo fan, and even I'm happy I skipped out on The Master Chief Collection after reading what seemed to be an endless stream of complaints from players who found every kind of bug imaginable. It didn't help that 343 Studios decided they had better things to do (technically, that is correct, as they were finishing Halo 5), and never returned to do patches that would have fixed the underlining issues. It left many fans despondent over what was clearly a cash grab over a set of titles they didn't originally make. Now it appears they'll finally be making a belated fix to the game, but it's still not happening right away.

'Halo: The Master Chief Collection' Is Finally Getting Fixed… In 2018

In the Halo livestream below, it was announced by developers that the game would get a patch to fix everything, but you still won't be getting it until Spring 2018. (Just for clarification, you're not getting a fix for a game that's been out for 3 1/2 years at that point.) The other piece of news to come from the event was that Halo 5 would be getting an upgrade for Xbox One X users with a content update on November 7th, which will finally give the game a 4K update that fans were screaming about and both the studio and Microsoft said wasn't happening until now. No official word as to whether H:MCC will get the same treatment, but the smart money is probably on "no."
