343 Industries is still polishing Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and the next update for online multiplayer should be available soon.

In an update posted yesterday, 343 Industries said the the next content update is currently undergoing testing and will be available in the next few days. This latest update will focus on user-interface, matchmaking, game-specific multiplayer and campaign, controls, and stability when it is available.

You can find the full list of updates here, which details small changes like, "Lowered the music volume level in multiplayer menus," and bigger updates like, "Fixed an issue in Halo 4 where players could equip the same weapon as their primary and secondary weapons."

In response to the online multiplayer issues that have plagued The Master Chief Collection, Microsoft is issuing a free month of Xbox Live gold to those affected by the problems. Players should also keep an eye out for the upgraded Halo 3: ODST, as well.

Our Take
Things have certainly smoothed for The Master Chief Collection, but I am glad to see 343 Industries is still committed to making sure the game performs as best it can.
