Microsoft has posted an official statement concerning an error with the latest Crimson Map Pack DLC for Halo 4, saying that only 200 players were banned as a result of the glitch.

Halo 4 received a brand new DLC pack last week, in the form of the Crimson add-on, which included new maps and a fresh multiplayer mode.

Sadly, the release of the add-on wasn't without issues, as those who should have gotten it for free weren't able to download it until a day later than expected.

Over the weekend, other Halo 4 players found that they were banned from accessing certain parts of the game.

Now, Microsoft has confirmed, via Kotaku, that the banning error has been remedied and that only a few people actually had their accounts affected by the glitch.

Those players were reinstated by Microsoft and the company says the error shouldn't affect anyone else in the future.
