Halo: The Master Chief Collection's Latest Known Issues Detailed Ahead Of Halo 3 PC Release

Microsoft announces some of the issues it's working on for the Xbox One and PC game.

3 Comments

Halo: The Master Chief Collection keeps chugging along with expansive new updates and added features, and also some lingering issues. Developer 343 Industries has updated its list of Known Issues for the game to let people know what what the studio is working on and what to expect in terms of when fixes may be delivered.

First and foremost, however, 343 mentioned that its current No. 1 priority currently is working to get Halo 3 (and the rest of the games) out the door on PC through The Master Chief Collection. That being said, 343 is concurrently working on fixing various issues and responding to feedback.

The items on the Known Issues list aren't being treated at the same rate due to scope. Some issues might be addressed with speed, while others might take longer. With those caveats out of the way, the current list of Known Issue for MCC as of June 30 includes things like general performance on Xbox One and issues with the pistol bullet spread for Halo: Combat Evolved.

Additionally, players have reported audio issues for Halo Reach, and these should be implemented in the game alongside the release of Halo 3 on PC. There have also been reports about problems with mouse input, and 343 said it doesn't have a fix currently but is looking into the matter.

Another issue is related to hit registration. 343 said it has been looking into this for weeks now, and the studio will continue to investigate a fix. However, the studio said fans should not expect an update soon.

You can see the full list of known issues below, featuring developer commentary written by 343.

In other news, 343 is updating MCC's progression system with the upcoming Season 2 update, while weapon and vehicle skins are coming to Halo: CE for the first time in 19 years.

Halo MCC Known Issues (June 29, 2020):

  • Audio Issues: Most reported issues for Reach should be fixed in the next update with Halo 3’s release, if the changes are positively received, this will be removed from the list in the next blog
  • Mouse Input: This is an area of the game that we will continue to monitor and improve upon where we can. If you are encountering issues with this, please submit a ticket at the Halo Support site.
  • Idle Stops matchmaking: This is still on our list but nothing new to share on this one as we try to tackle higher priority issues.
  • Achievement Issues & Support Tickets: We have continued to fix bugs around reported achievement issues. If there are achievements that you are still encountering issues with specifically, please submit a ticket at the Halo Support site.
  • Hit Registration: We started an initial investigation a few weeks back... While this is not one of our top issues coming into our support ticket system, it has been a long-standing complaint from many in the community so it is being added to the list. We will continue to investigate, share our findings with you, and hopefully be able to flight some potential changes in the near future.

I just bought Halo CE on steam but the game feel unoptimized. I have a low-tier PC but I've played more graphically advanced games with far better performance. It's a poor port and it makes 343 Industries look as incompetent as Gearbox Software. It's bad enough that they can't make good Halo games.

I want halo to give us that feeling we got when bungie was running the show in 2001-2010... Sadly I don't feel we're going to go back to the glory days any time soon.

When you compare 343 halo games to the good old bungie halo games from back in the day... The over all theme is that bungie halo games sold better, got played more, and had better review scores.

If you like 343 halo games more than bungie halo games then more power to ya. Sadly I can't feel the same way. And I get that the times are different too so that's a factor... Gaming is a lot different than it was 10-20 years ago.

Many other game franchises around 2013/14 started to push greedy micro transactions onto us in pretty lame ways that were kind of a rip off in the eyes of most people. This only hurts more than it helps honestly and based on the stats... This is a strong claim for me to make since it's backed by so many facts. Most folks do find this stuff to be greedy and annoying more than it is helpful in any way. Just saying. And I'm with them. I think they got a point. Didn't used to have to pull our a credit card to get a unlock. Back in the day you would just play the game and get good enough to unlock the secrets which always felt more rewarding and less like a scam from the devs corporate masters.

Halo infinite hasn't even shown us game play and this is supposed to be this massive launch title xbox and pc exclusive running on a new engine that's playable on xbox one, xbox one x, the series x coming out soon, and pc. Sounds like a massive project to pull off. Are they going to screw up like they did with MCC? We'll see but this doesn't look good. Especially when you look at 343s track record with horrid launches like the mcc or halo 5 launching with very little content. Even halo wars 2 is largely worse than halo wars 1 in the eyes of many. Myself included. And with the covid screwing crap up... Shyeesh! This game is supposed to be out in close to 4 months and like I said... STILL no game play footage. Yikes...

I wish 343 the best and I want them to do a good job but it's hard to have faith... Their corporate masters only seem to care about money or at least care wayyy more about money than giving us a halo game that rivals one of the great ones from back in the bungie halo days. And yes... I'm well aware that bungie turned into a worse company in the eyes of most people after they left halo lol... So don't think I'm one of those people who thinks bungie coming back would bring back the halo glory days because that wouldn't necessarily work out too good... Destiny is a franchise that's pretty mixed on the like/dislike factor. While bungie halo games were mostly liked by comparison. Just saying...

Not going to just outright say the game will suck though. I used to do that and it was dumb. I said windwaker looked dumb when I first saw it back in the day. Said things like awww this is going to suck!!! Boy oh boy was I a fool. Recently played the wiiu version which was my first experience with the game and MAN! Great great game. And the visuals grew on me : )

So we'll see. Good luck 343! Let's hope your corporate masters don't get too greedy this time and let you make a work of art that all or at least most by a long shot can appreciate! You know... Like the good old bungie halo days : )

Just my take on it. I'm sure I made flaws but hey... We're all flawed right?
