Last month’s scheduled Halo Reach Firefight PC test was delayed due to blocking bugs, developer 343 Industries has recently confirmed.
“We chose to hold back FireFlight [the Firefight PC test] due to severe blocking bugs,” a post on Halo Waypoint reads.
“While we continue working to address and solve those bugs, the challenges proved insurmountable to release the flight in July. Our goal when preparing for flights is to ensure that the experience hits the necessary quality bar to deliver an effective and successful flight for both Halo Insiders as well as 343 Industries. While we strive to ensure we run our flights on a timely basis, ensuring the effectiveness of the flight must take priority.”
A lengthy explaination of blocking bugs and test release rings can be found on Halo Waypoint. We’ll keep you informed when the test is rescheduled.
