This day one update will be required to access the multiplayer modes, and considering the number of titles in the collection, an update this big doesn’t come as a big surprise (no pun intended). Still, while updates are usually met with excitement, as they promise new features and are free, when they’re this big they can be annoying.
"Do I understand the inconvenience and annoyance for some users? Of course.” Said 343 Industries co-founder Frank O’Connor. “I'm not going to blow smoke or ignore it. For some folks it will be straight up annoying and I both apologize unreservedly for the [irritation], and hope that the package and the way it works more than makes up for it."
