343 Industries has confirmed that Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s April update has entered certification and is on track for release next week.
The update will include new penalties and monitoring for quitting and betrayals, a variety of ranking system improvements and fixes, and an updated Halo 3 Forge, which includes editing options for all game types. As well as this, the update also includes game-specific improvements for each title, party improvements, and more.
“As mentioned above, the April CU will contain a wide variety of improvements to the ranking system, which will allow us to begin to roll out ranks to additional playlists,” the developer added. “Shortly after the content update drops (we?re aiming for the next day or so), we?ll be resetting ranks for the Halo 2: Anniversary playlist, and also adding ranking to Team Slayer and the Halo Championship Series playlists. Over the following days, we?ll be monitoring results to ensure that everything is working properly before adding ranks to additional playlists.”
Finally, next week’s update will see SWAT return as the featured playlist.
