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.
