343 Industries continues their work to improve the Halo experience with their most recent community update bringing improved matchmaking in content updates and promises of new playlist additions.
Those part of the Xbox Preview program will get a sooner look at the upgrades to the online play while a public release date is promised for February.
In addition to improved lobbies and matchmaking, more mutliplayer modes are to come as well. Team Snipers, an objective-only playlist, and a cross-game Rumble Pit playlist are confirmed to be added soon, while the highly coveted Team Doubles is still being held off to a later date.
Beyond the Master Chief Collection, 343i is looking towards their future as they build an “extensive list of improvements for [Halo 5].” An upcoming blog update by Executive Producer Josh Holmes will be showcasing the details of what the developers are looking at as they approach the continuation of the Master Chief saga.
