Halo: The Master Chief Collection Will Soon Support Over 6 Million Player-Created Maps

We’re talking about Brad Sams’ piece on Thurrot, and if you haven’t read it here’s the skinny – Industries have had a torrid time developing Halo Infinite and the amount of outsourcing has caused many headaches for everyone involved, which eventually led for creative director Tim Longo jumping the ship in August It also touches on an earlier report that Halo Infinite’s multiplayer and singleplayer were at one point meant to launch together, which denied at the time, and the piece basically accuses them of lying. In response to this piece posted on Halo’s subreddit, community director Brian Jarrard said the studio doesn’t normally entertain “this kind of stuff”. However, being personally implicated is another matter, so he did. The “reporting” at the time said, “MP would not be shipping with single player this Fall. The tweet that made that claim was then deleted. Phil Spencer went on “Animal Talking” recently and while discussing the Infinite shift to , did mention that separating MP and Campaign was briefly considered before the decision was made to shift it all to next year.

Sometimes sifting through playlists for multiplayer games is annoying, hopping between modes and whatnot with no way to just matchmake to your convenience. Four years after its release, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is developing just the solution: a “mix tape” feature, wherein players can set specific preferences and matchmake into games with those in place without the multiple playlist surfing.

When ‘Halo 2’ Invaded Planet Earth

The most recent Halo: Reach PC Insider test was supposed to come to an end today after a week-long session, but Industries had other plans in store. Today, the developer shared that the test has been extended by at least another week, with it now slated to end on November 12, though there is a chance of even more days being added later on. The developer is prepping a new update for the current build to address some of the reported issues. There isn’t a date attached to this patch yet, but when it is available, Insiders can use this link to check out the changelog.

The contents of the build haven’t changed, offering the Noble Actual and Winter Contingency campaign missions, Firefight co-op as well as regular head to head multiplayer matchmaking for the invited Steam and Windows 10 players as before.

Last week’s Community Update chronicled our latest milestones for bringing MCC to PC, provided a month-long roadmap for Halo 5, peaked behind the curtain of HaloOutpost, released Halo 3 concept art, and more. Drop in and give it a read! We’ve collected a community snapshot of fan art, montages, cosplay, and more. There’s no time like the present to browse and enjoy this week’s Community Spotlight! Appreciate everyone’s support and we know that the vast majority of the Halo community isn’t like this.

But, it’s the internet and this thing is sadly not uncommon. We don’t take these things lightly and our top priority is the safety of our team and players – we have a zero tolerance policy towards threats of any kind, they are all taken seriously, and all escalated and pursued to the full extent possible. Back in my day the worst thing that happened was someone picketing outside the studio and one guy who got through to our desk phones and left messages for a large chunk of the studio complaining that the Halo 3 beta wasn’t live yet.

The original development partner was no longer involved and after a few months of investigation we did not have a viable solution to address these issues and continue supporting these titles. They’ve been removed from the Apple Store for some time now and are regrettably not in a great state. While I’d love to see these revisited and updated, currently the studio is focused on MCC PC and Infinite so it’s not something we can tackle right now.

Fall Guys has become one of the critically acclaimed games of the year The game’s success was even surprising for its developers. Fall Guys is an online service game, rendering it unplayable if you don’t have a constant internet connection. Fall Guys launched with distinct PS4 and PC servers which could hold only a limited number of players. But things didn’t go as planned. It had more than 1.

As a result, the servers were strained and players started facing connection errors. The connection error on fall guys is nothing but a message prompt used when the game servers are either offline or facing other issues. The developers were overwhelmed with the positive response on Fall Guys from the gaming community and are working on increasing the server capacity.

Another big hurdle was overcome when we added fan-favorite playlists, such as SWAT and Halo: CE, back to our matchmaking menu and we plan to add more soon. I assure you that the team will continue to work on additional content updates to further improve the all-up gameplay experience. This has been a humbling experience and highlighted how we as a studio can — and need — to do better for Xbox fans around the world.

It is with immense sadness and pride that we announce that GrifballHub will be closing its doors this spring. Sadness because this is truly the end of an era for our community; Pride because we can look back with sheer astonishment at all we have built, all we have accomplished, and all the joy GrifballHub has brought to players around the world. So many people have poured so much into this site over the past decade. GrifballHub was a major part of our lives for nearly a decade.

When we first started writing articles about the AGLA and ran our first GGL season with just six teams, we never imagined how wildly successful this site would become. We ran leagues with hundreds of Grifball teams. We created Grifball maps and gametypes for matchmaking. We had direct input in the creation of Grifball in Halo 4 and Halo 5. And we achieved what we consider the pinnacle of our efforts: Showcasing the sport and our community at RTX four years in a row.

It boggles the mind to think about how a sports-game-within-a-first-person-shooter, originally created as a joke, survived and thrived for a full decade. But the answer lies in the most essential part of GrifballHub: Our community. Grifball and GrifballHub continued to exist by the sheer force of will of hundreds of fans.

Our goal is still to support modding, but due to shift in development priorities that tends to happen over the course of a project, modding has continued to get pushed back over the past 6 or so months. The good news here is that we have reached a point where we are now able to spend some cycles to get the conversations, design, and planning going again. I am also now in active iteration on the EULA that lays out the ground rules for modding and player generated content with our legal team.

I understand this will be disappointing news to many of you, but the silver lining here is the EULA is in late stages. Once it is ready, we will re-assess what we can accomplish in the short, mid, and long-term timelines. Modding is close to my heart so I hope to be able to ramp this effort up more soon.
