A new update is now available for the Master Chief Collection!
This update adds Team objective for the rotational playlist this month. And through extensive feedback (and alot of whining) the SWAT playlist is now permanent and Halo CE will now give us the option to vote for Slayer more often. Voting slots 1 and 2 in the Halo CE playlist will now ONLY give Slayer options.
343i is also aware of the issue that Halo CE now has the motion tracker enabled, they're already looking into resolving this.
Additionally some more maps have been added to certain playlists and updates have been made to gametypes and maps.
Here they are:
Burial Mounds has been added to Halo 2 classic and Team Objective
Exile and Harvest CTF have been added to Halo 4
Longest has been added to Halo 4 Team Slayer
The occurence of Warlord BRs in Halo 2 Anniversary has been reduced
The Halo Chapionship Series playlist has been updated to the latest tournament settings
Map variants Pit Stop, Sand Tarp, Epilogue and Boundless have been added to Halo 3
We'll also get some ranked playlists that have not yet been released, but will be as soon as possible.
The playlists you can look out for are:
Halo 2 Classic
The remaining featured playlists will not get ranking but will be making use of skill matchmaking. Team Slayer will become unranked somewhere around June as all featured Halo titles will get individual ranking.
"While the appeal of a who’s-the-best-all-around-Halo-Slayer ranked playlist is a particularly interesting one, we also see great value in a social slay-‘em-all experience, and we wanted to provide a head’s up in case you’re on the grind."
343i knows that some people want other playlists ranked or even not ranked, but they state they cannot accomodate to each individual player. Instead they'll read as much feedback as possible and will adjust likewise.
Team Doubles, Halo 3 Hardcore and 8v8 BTB are on the way but require some additional updates before they can be implemented. Team doubles will even return as a permanent playlist and will feature more variety in maps.
Halo: ODST and the Relic remake are also on the way this month and 343i has released the official name of the remake.
Which will be:
More details on this will be released following up to the release.
