If You’re Having Issues Updating Halo Wars 2, Keep Your Xbox One Running July 25, 2017

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

Since the second patch was released for Halo Wars 2 on the Xbox One, I’ve had nothing but issues installing it.  The update would simply hang at 0% in my download queue, seemingly accomplishing no progress regardless of the amount of time it was running.

Today, an all new patch has just been released for Halo Wars 2, including new balancing tweaks and support for the new DLC Blitz Packs, and once again the download stalled before it even started. I kept my Xbox One running for over two hours before the game finally began to patch.

In the past, I believed this issue to be a bug with the Xbox One’s operating system or a mistake with my game installation, the developers have assured me neither is the case.  They believe it is an issue with the Xbox Live Marketplace and they are still working on fixing it. If you do a hard restart of your Xbox One console while it is patching the game, the Xbox One will immediately re-download the entire game from scratch, all 30GB+ of it, so be aware of that.

Halo Wars 2 is out now on the Xbox One and Windows 10.
