In an official blog post on Halowaypoint.com, 343 Industries went over a number of improvements and changes that will be coming to Halo 5: Guardians. Specifically, some certain server issues that have been significantly affecting players are going to be fixed.
Per the blog post from 343 Industries:
“As a commitment to sustaining a fun and enjoyable online experience along with a consistent and fair competitive landscape, the team is actively investigating these reports. In fact, I’m told there will be a very small update pushed out tentatively as early as next week that’s strictly under-the-hood work to further assist in identifying the root causes of reported instances of higher-than-usual latency, disconnects as well as melee registration to help facilitate a fix.”
Interestingly enough, the blog post also indicated that a “classic” playlist would be coming soon to the game. However, no other details were revealed. This would certainly be a welcome addition to fans of the game.
343 also addresses the issues that have been plaguing Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which launched two years ago in November 2014. 343 Industries addressed that while some of the changes have made the gameplay better, there are still “oddities and inconsistent behaviors” that are negatively impacting the gameplay experience. The blog continued, “While I can’t definitively commit to specific fixes at this exact moment, rest assured that MCC continues to be discussed and researched internally as part of the broader ‘Halo sustain’ plans and priorities, including the potential of playlist refreshes.”
Halo 5: Guardians is currently available now for Xbox One and Windows PC.
