Halo Master Chief Collection Xbox One X Update Planned

About a year after Microsoft launched the Xbox One, developer 343 Industries gave us Halo: The Master Chief Collection. For Halo fans, it was the collection they had been waiting for, offering Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4 in one bundle complete with graphical upgrades. For Microsoft, it offered gamers a great reason to pick up an Xbox One if they hadn't already.

Now, with the Xbox One X arriving in roughly three weeks time, 343 Industries is set to return to The Master Chief Collection once again. As Eurogamer reports, this time we can expect enhancements worthy of output on a 4K UHD TV. The only downside of this announcement being 343 is going to keep us waiting for the newly updated collection until some point in 2018.

Anyone who picked up The Master Chief Collection at launch for Xbox One back in 2014 will remember how disastrous it actually was. There were a lot of bugs, multiplayer was a mess, and there was a 15GB patch to download.

343 now has an opportunity to relaunch without any of those mishaps, but also to fix any of the remaining bugs still present in the Xbox One version.

We don't have a release date or even a launch window, but the enhancements announcement was made via a community livestream on Twitch. During the stream it was also stated that a "public flighting program" would be run to test out the bug fixes. We also have to assume that if you already own The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One, this update is going to be free and automatically applied next year.
