343 Industries Is 'Investigating' Raising The Player Count In Halo: The Master Chief Collection

It's crazy how much support Halo: The Master Chief Collection has received over the years. From its rocky launch to where it is today, it's been a steep climb for redemption, but one it's ultimately risen to the challenge of. But even all this time later, the game is still receiving support, and one of the things developer 343 Industries is now investigating is raising the player count.

Speaking on an Xbox podcast, the game's producer Sean Swindersky revealed that the team is investigating player counts above 16. He stated: "If we can add more people... obviously [looking at] the performance and some of the other consoles... if we can add that kind of stuff to go higher than 16 players in these classic games and help it get up to 40-60, that would be wild."

We imagine this wouldn't work on every map, but some of the larger scale Big Team Battle maps would be great with an increased player count. Sandtrap comes to mind with its barren wastes and hulking vehicles. If this ever does come to fruition, hopefully we might hear something in the coming months.
