343 Industries has ditched the idea of running a beta for Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s latest update, the developer has confirmed.

“After further evaluation, the team has determined that that final testing for the content update will be completed internally, and we will not be conducting a beta test for the next CU [content update],” said 343i’s Andy Dudynsky on Halo Waypoint.

“Also, it was determined that the additional time and work devoted to the beta would’ve actually postponed the public availability of the content update. Lastly, there were some added challenges surrounding the CU beta – including an extra series of required updates and rollbacks – that made us take a step back and reexamine the CU beta.

“Ultimately, this plan will allow us to deliver the smoothest possible experience, and ensure that the next content update becomes available as soon as possible.”

The date and time of the next content update’s arrival has yet to be decided.

“As stated last week, our current focus and priority remains delivering the upcoming improvements to the matchmaking and party systems, but the team is also working on and prioritizing additional items beyond this, and I look forward to discussing these – a lot more – as we get closer to those updates,” said Dudynsky.

343 Industries also revealed some concept art from the upcoming Halo 2: Anniversary map Relic, provided as part of an apology for The Master Chief Collection’s ongoing problems. The map is being remade by developer Certain Affinity and you can see the art below.
