“We are holding on introducing the dedicated Halo: CE playlist. Up until this very day, we’ve been making (and are continuing to make) investments to ensure that Halo: CE’s online/network performance is the best it can be within Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and we’re committed to making additional investments to make this happen.

The current Halo: CE experience will be playable in custom games, as well as the Team Slayer and Big Team Battle playlists, but we are holding on the dedicated playlist until we are able to provide the best experience possible. Lastly, due to your feedback over the past few weeks, we’ll be moving the Halo: CE playlist to 2v2 when it launches.”

The developer further added: “It is also worth noting here that as with all titles in The Master Chief Collection, we are closely monitoring title-specific feedback. For launch, we’ve made investments to Halo: CE to improve general gameplay performance, as well as updated community-requested issues such as the Sniper Rifle reticle size, and more. As stated above, we’re continuing to make updates that will increase the quality of the experience, and we thank you for your patience.”
