Resolved in this hotfix

  • Fixed an issue in matchmade Heroic Firefight games that caused the difficulty to be set to Normal.
  • Fixed an issue with matchmaking that made it harder for players in low population regions to find games.
  • Fixed an issue with some game variants failing to load when connecting in matchmaking. This mainly happened for Halo: Combat Evolved.
  • Added a Report Player button to the Player Details page. The rules and processes behind reporting a player are the same as before.

Known issue

  • The post-game Carnage Report for a matchmade Heroic Firefight Social match says the session was on Normal difficulty, even though it was on Heroic difficulty.
  • While loading into a matchmade Halo: Combat Evolved game, the loading screen information is sometimes missing or incorrect.

In other Halo news, Halo Infinite’s multiplayer is going to feature its own storyline! I admit, that is kind of intriguing.
