Halo Infinite will soon receive a patch to address the Big Team Battle (BTB) matchmaking issues that have plagued the game since launch, while an next major update is slated for mid-February to target cheating and cheating. other player issues.
Described in a Halo Waypoint blog post, a fix for BTB matchmaking issues, which prevented players and large groups from successfully connecting to 12v12 matches, is currently in progress. The message states that the development team has identified a fix for the issue that is still under testing.
No release date for the patch has been given, although the post mentions that it will be rolled out ASAP while ensuring that it doesn’t have any other unintended impacts on the game.
“It won’t be this week, but we hope it’s not too far away and we’ll share an update as soon as we have a line of sight on a release date (once we clear ‘cert’ [certification] we are then ready to ship), ”the post said.
After the patch, a new update is planned for mid-February, which will address cases of cheating and other issues raised by the community. We can expect more details on this update closer to the time. The developers stress again that they are trying to include as many fixes as possible in the February update without undermining existing parts of the game.
Analysis: a necessary fix
Halo Infinite’s BTB matchmaking has been wobbly since the game launched last year. While the game mode has always been playable, large groups of players trying to log into 12-person battles often encounter error screens, spontaneous logouts, or looping loading screens that go on forever. Not really a smooth experience.
This has been a lingering source of disappointment for those who are thrilled to jump into the chaos of a great Halo deathmatch with their friends. Often times you’ll have a better chance of ditching your friends altogether, and you can pretty much make it a BTB game if you’re looking for it solo, but that spoils the magic a bit.
This matchmaking fix will be good news for much of the in-game community. While many players would have liked to see a fix released before the holiday season, a full fix that fixes the problem without breaking other segments of the game will be worth it. well worth the wait. The development of the game cannot be rushed.
Although only days after the start of January, the year has not been calm for Halo Infinite. Last week, its limited-time multiplayer event Fracture: Tenrai returned, introducing several improvements to its progression system in response to fan feedback.
