Servers for the Halo Master Chief collection are struggling today it would seem and a lot of gamers are having problems with the matchmaking, struggling to get in a game.
After complaints of waiting times of upto 45 minutes starting appearing, 343 acknowledged the problem on Twitter saying that they are aware that some users are experiencing longer than normal Matchmaking search times and that they are actively working on a fix for this issue.
343 have also offered advise to anyone having difficulties getting into a match stating that If after a few minutes you're unable to find a match, exit Matchmaking and then begin searching again. Simple really eh!
Microsoft have also issued a statement on the Xbox Live status page which says they are currently working with an external partner to fix issues. It would seem portions of XBL servers are also experiencing problems:
