IGN just released a few details 343 Industries gave them regarding the ranking system for The Master Chief Collection. We’ve already been told it would be similar to Halo 2 skill-based ranking system, but we have more info on how XP breaks down and how it relates to your rank.
The system uses the same exact XP requirements as the original Halo 2; players will earn XP when they win and lose XP when they lose, and total XP will determine their rank. You will have a skill-based ranking per each playlist
There is no overall rank for The Master Chief Collection because of the differences in each title included in the game. Skill detection has been vastly improved to conduct matchmaking much quicker than previous Halo titles. The studio goes on to say:
In ranked hoppers, players will be evaluated after each match and can go up or down in ranks depending on how well they perform. Unranked (social) matches will also be available for players who prefer a more relaxed play experience.
