343 Industries has detailed the upcoming updates to matchmaking in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Posting on Halo Waypoint, the developer revealed that the player count on certain multiplayer game modes would be increased and that SWAT would return as a featured playlist.

Future content updates will introduce other playlists back into the rotation, including Halo: CE, Halo 4, Team Hardcore and future featured playlists, such as Team Doubles, Team Snipers and more.

  • Updated the player count to 4v4 (6 minimum, 8 maximum) for the following playlists: Team Slayer, Halo 2 Classic, Halo 3, Halo Championship Series and SWAT.
  • Updated voting options across multiple playlists to improve the balance of appearance of BR-start and objective game types.
  • Updated the “max party size” for Big Team Battle from 4-6, and the team is working on resolving issues that are affecting parties with 8 players. Once resolved, the max party size will return to 8.

Further details about the update can be found on the Halo Waypoint website.

The next content update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection is scheduled for early next week.
