343 Industries says that the patch will resolve many bugs and problems with online multiplayer. The patch is 523MB big and should help a lot. However more work still needs to be done to eliminate all the matchmaking and multiplayer problems.

The game is out for about 17 days and is struggling with a lot of issues and even the executive in charge Bonnie Ross said:

"I personally apologize for this on behalf of us all at 343 Industries. Our team is committed to working around the clock until these issues are resolved."
