Halo: The Master Chief Collection may soon receive an increase in the maximum number of players in the game at the same time.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection could receive a noticeable increase in the maximum number of players at the same time in the game, as 343 Industries is “investigating” the possibility of changing this limit and raising it to 40-60 players.
The current maximum limit is 16 players in multiplayer games of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, but it seems that the developers intend to increase it substantially: this at least is what was reported by Sean Swidersky, producer of 343 Industries , during a session game in livestream.
Speaking with ThemaVShow, host of the streaming broadcast, Swidersky clearly reported that 343 Industries is “investigating the possibility” of increasing the maximum amount of players up to 40 or 60 players in the game.
This would be an important change, which probably needs a general reworking with regards to the balancing and organization of maps and matchmaking, so it is not a very simple introduction to implement.
One idea is that this increase in the cap regarding the maximum number of players can be applied for custom games, which would solve any problems on an official multiplayer balance, but we still await any clarification from 343 Industries on the subject. . Meanwhile, the team has also expanded the game’s modding tools .
Among other things, we have learned that Big Team Battle on Halo Infinite will support more players than in the past , always in line with the topic.
