Does this mean more people get invited?
As of now there are no plans to add brand new users to this flight. It's only being extended by a few days.
They really need to get a larger crew working on MCC especially since they stated they weren't working on certain issues due to lack of manpower.
It's not really an issue of manpower per say - there are multiple external development partners/studios contributing to MCC coming to PC. But the larger those teams become, the more challenging the whole project is to manage. Keep in mind the vast majority of the studio is completely focused on Halo Infinite. Ultimately the MCC work is still six complete games, most very old, being updated and brought to PC almost from square one which has proven to be no small feat. Features and issues always shift around and move up and down the priority list in game development - IMO every game has to inevitably make tradeoffs or it'd never ship. Good news is that the team is continuing to work on MCC PC and that work will continue on all the titles even after they've "shipped."
remember when they said "it would come sooner than you expected" and everyone was like ":0 before e3??" then we waited like a whole ass year, they definitely announced it too early.
We've been pretty open about the fact that some aspects of development proved to be more challenging and complex than originally scoped. The project took longer than originally planned or we'd have never have announced that early.
I believe the largest flight group we've invited to date was around ~150K people. That's only a fraction of the total Halo Insider audience so, statistically speaking, you're far from the only person who's yet to receive an invite. Sorry you haven't gotten selected yet - for this most recent flight, the team specifically added a lot of Insiders who've yet to be selected (in addition to re-inviting folks who were active in prior flights). I assume you have opted in for PC flighting and have a DXDIAG attached to your Insider profile?
Fun fact - that's actually an older track created by Kazuma! It was something he originally composed to be used as a theme track of sorts for Halo World Championship a few years back. It never really got used broadly.
Great to hear! Not too often that kind words bubble up in here, so thanks and we're happy to hear you and your buddies are having fun! Next up: Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary! :)
Oh my god I’m honored 😭😭❤️
Glad you enjoyed it!
Thought that was him lol, Master Beef?
We're seeing this pop-up now that people are getting off of work. It looks like Xbox Live's status page is currently showing "signing in" as impacted.
If that resolves and you're still seeing issues, please let me know!
What's your Gamertag?
