Halo: The Master Chief Collection will soon get an update that will finally add a system to punish quitters. As it currently stands, players can quit matchmaking games half way through with very little punishment which leaves games unbalanced and unfair, especially in team games.
Thankfully 343 Industries has nearly completed development for a system that will punish and discourage quitters. Unfortunately 343 didn't go into much detail about how the Master Chief Collection will punish quitting. Instead, a small blog post was listed to explain that the upcoming patch will "address a variety of areas, including ranking, will add new systems for quitting and penalties, and will improve a number of community items."
So far, 343 Industries has not set a release date for the changes, but it would be safe to say that the new changes will be released in a patch before the end of the year. Hopefully in between now and then we'll hear some further details about exactly how the quitting punishments in the Master Chief Collection will work and also more information on what other things the new patch will include.
It's great to see that 343 Industries are still working hard to make The Master Chief Collection playable, balanced and enjoyable for everybody involved. Especially considering Halo 5: Guardians has a release date just around the corner.
For those unaware, Halo Guardians will be release on October 27, exclusively for the Xbox One.
