Halo: MCC woes push Halo: Spartan Strike spin-off into 2015
Though Halo: Spartan Strike was originally scheduled for release this month, a notice on Halo Waypoint claims the overhead shooter spin-off has been delayed due to the ongoing technical problems plaguing Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

"Earlier this year, we announced Halo: Spartan Strike, our latest touch-based top-down shooter for Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Steam, will be available on Dec. 12," the notice reads. "While we're excited about this all-new Halo experience, our commitment to resolving the current matchmaking issues in Halo: The Master Chief Collection remains the top priority. As a result, we have decided to move the release of Halo: Spartan Strike to early 2015."

While this is disappointing, it's probably for the best. Halo: The Master Chief Collection was hyped as a massive Xbox One exclusive prior to release, yet the compilation has faced online matchmaking problems since its November 11 launch. The game has received numerous updates - the most recent arrived just two days ago - but the problems continue to affect anyone hoping to take Halo: The Master Chief Collection online.
