A post over on Reddit detailed each round and its distinctive and specific challenges. Round 1 is for Tough Luck; Round 2 is for Tough Luck - Blackeye; Round 3 is for Tough Luck - Blackeye - Thunderstorm; Round 4 is for Tough Luck - Blackeye - Thunderstorm - Catch and lastly, Round 5 is for Tough Luck - Blackeye - Thunderstorm - Catch - Mythic.
"Halo 5" developer 343 Industries is aware of the persisting and legitimate issues that plague "Halo: The Master Chief Collection," which comprises remastered versions of "Halo: Combat Evolved" and "Halo 2," and standard versions of "Halo 3" and "Halo 4." Players had a hard time finding a match due to the problem, according to GameSpot.
Brian Jarrard, 343 Industries' community manager, said on Reddit (via NeoGAF) that more updates are coming to "Halo: The Master Chief Collection" in the near future. Jarrard shared that "conversations are still being had" and "assessments are still being made" about the game's performance.
Each installment of the first-person shooter video game aims to ensure the "core spirit" of the franchise despite the additional elements being added every so often, according to "Halo" boss Bonnie Ross' Q&A for the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. Ross stressed that they always "listen to fan feedback" because their followers are the sci-fi franchise's "heart and soul, and this universe was built for them."
Ross said that social media plays a vital role in the development of the "Halo" franchise. Social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook make it "easier and harder to identify problems in gameplay," though it also needs "extra diligence to really understand and evaluate qualitative and quantitative data, as neither alone are right."
In other news, "Halo 6" is yet to be announced but expectations are already rife about the upcoming main entry in the series. "Halo 6" will tie up the Reclaimer Trilogy and is expected to be revealed at E3 2017 on June 13-15, according to Trusted Reviews.
