The columns list the maps by game includes all DLC and alternate versions , and you can go horizontally on the rows to see if and when the map has been remade.

Major AAA title games launched with serious problems that took months to years to resolve. It was a bleak time for the game, but patches kept coming in hopes to fix the bleeding pig. The list above shows that tried to fix things. A patch basically weekly for 6 straight weeks. These patches did fix some of the most crazy bugs this game suffered.
Releases kept coming, including some patches that had features! This was an apology to the world for the absolute mess that was Halo MCC. Personally though, I didn’t want new content. I wanted a game that worked. Regardless of the patches made, things didn’t really work. I imagine this was a by-product of weekly releases on such a large game.

The development team at Bungie took a bold risk in building a new type of online experience, and it was a massive success and made millions of people happy. At the time, most researchers at Microsoft supported three to five titles each, but because this was a major tentpole title for the original Xbox, there were two user experience researchers assigned to help with the game full-time, myself and Randy Pagulayan. Our job was to use qualitative and quantitative techniques like usability studies, playtests, and surveys to give design teams insights into how their games would be received after they were released.
This is a story about a time when I failed to be a good prophet, where my attempts to project research data into the future led to a conflict between the research team at Microsoft and the design team at Bungie. Usually, public discussions about games user research focus on the times we were right, the times when data fixed game design.
