Still the most disappointed I have ever been buying a game day 1. Haven't been nearly as invested in Xbox as a whole since.

Hell, I don't even care about PC or Reach or remastered Halo 3.

I just want the goddamn game to do what was promised: seamless multiplayer across the various Halo generations. Or my money back, plus some for the inconvenience. I don't give two shits about how hard this is on the backend, this is the hype that they sold this game on. Repeatedly.

They could redeem themselves if they:

- Port to PC / add Scorpio support
- Add ODST and Reach
- Halo 3: Anniversary integrated into MCC
- Squash all the bugs

Has anyone received something between today and yesterday?

I'm curious about how they are selecting people, because some friends/people, who logged over 500 hours and are part of the HCFP, didn't get one. Meanwhile, a friend of mine who refunded the game after a week got a survey.

Don't you think that people who logged significant playtime know more about the issues than people who didn't? I have over 700 hours and I also did every single achievement (600 achievements to be precise) which made me realize even more how many bugs this Collection has.

ODST is in MCC. It was free if you played before the end of the year it launched, or $5 after.

Wow, you have the patience of a saint. All achievements. Do you have every other achievement in Halo games?

I still think they may have been working on it quietly on the side, it would need a major reworking, not patch after patch and porting to PC, Scorpio. The franchise is so tainted, they need a win big time and expanding to the PC crowd with Halo 6 probably, it wouldn't be the worse thing to put Halo MCC on Windows, might even be their biggest hit behind Minecraft. The franchise needs some more fans more than ever. Fingers crossed. I hope they've gone above and beyond and improved everything, reworked things, Halo CEA that looks like Halo CE, no PC quirks, added more to Halo 2, remastered Halo 3/ODST and matchmaking for Firefight, Reach. 343's worst aspect, playlist management.

SP is fine. Atleast when i played it a couple of months later. No issues at all.
It is probably to not make the same mistakes with Halo 3 Remaster.

They will never fix MCC.

A free, major reworking of the MCC for all existing owners + 4k for scorpio + a PC version would be one of the nicest make goods on a fuck up since Final Fantasy XIV.


Do it Phil!


Add ODST and Reach into a new retail version and you got yourself quiet the repackage.

I do, except for Spartan Strike, Spartan Assault and Halo Wars 2. I had tons of fun with them for the most part, otherwise I really wouldn't do them. That's why I'm not gonna bother with Halo Wars 2 for now, until they further improve the campaign balancing. Halo Wars 1 was much better balanced and it was actually a challenge on Legendary. Halo Wars 2 is just cheap cheating bulletsponge AI.

Where do you live? I'm from NA (East Coast) and I rarely have issues finding games. The main issue I run into is Halo 3 95% of my matches lol.

No idea. I have only 6 achievements left to complete (LASO was a big challenge) and I still haven't recieved a survey through the feedback program.

Same here. I do enjoy some of the maps in Halo 3 but the lack of hitscan makes Halo 3's gunplay more inconsistent and frustrating than every other game in the collection.

Anything is possible at this point. Seems like a way to gauge interest in fixing it or relaunching/redoing it.

Hopefully this leads to a full pass through the game to polish out all of the issues, rebuild multiplayer and campaign co-op for dedicated servers, a 4K/60 Scorpio patch, and PC support with cross-platform play. And H3A (with toggle support on Scorpio, since it probably wouldn't be possible on OG X1) and a basic port of Halo Reach. With Reach and ODST Firefight.

I expect literally none of this.

Best case scenario: they finally fix MCC's multiplayer and make it free for all xbox users. This brings the community back to Halo in spades, pleases longtime fans, and feeds right into Halo 6 hype.

Matchmaking is still far from perfect for lots of people. Let alone other parts of the collection like co-op and custom games are still in a broken state.

Not that this means anything anymore, but MCC for PC was being worked on at some point. The Halo Channel App on Windows 10 even references it.

So hopefully if they are fixing this, they are also reviving the PC version as well

I will defend Halo 5 till I die but for any halo fan to say Halo MCC works fine physically hurts me. The game needs a refresh and I still hope there is a possibility because having a relaunch with a working multiplayer, Xbox play anywhere and cross play would still sell

Agreed.

Many friends, all had various issues. Even a few people who said "oh, it never was broken for me"- I watched their stream or visited their station-they had issues. From minor to never being able to find a match, that whole package was saddening. I think the people that say "It works fine for me" probably just don't recognize the gears getting stuck. Ignorance is bliss (good for them) or they just got incredibly lucky they didn't run across the big ones.

So close, yet so far.

It is amazing, though- that they had so many cooks in the kitchen and still got out a product that was semi functional. It's just nothing I would have expected Microsoft to back/release like that. One of the major franchises released in such poor showing is just really lame.

Yeah I will never get "Well I don't have issues on my end so it works perfectly" people. The game still has several issues sadly

Maybe a relaunch with bug fixes, Halo 3: Remastered/Anniversary added to it (to match the Halo 3 Anniversary), and Halo: Reach added. Everything but Halo 3: Anniversary is now free to download and has enhanced Scorpio benefits?

That would be one way to bring it back.

Same here. I'm still not satisfied until they do some more fixes and revamp the menu. Maps and game types should not be roes. This is just 343 trying to be different and failing hard.

I think a refresh and PC version could go a long way. Also adding in Reach too (even though I dislike Reach I still think it would help somewhat)
