A tweet from the Senior Communications Manager for Halo, Rob Semsey, has confirmed that the codes for the add-on are being sent out now.
And codes for Halo 3: ODST campaign are rollin' out!

The add-on acts as an apology to early adopters of the Master Chief Collection who have experienced problems with the game since launch. Anyone who owns the game and played it between November 11th and December 19th are being asked to keep an eye on their inbox for the free code. People who played the game after this date will be able to purchase the add-on for $5 when it goes on sale in the near future.
The ODST add-on is just a basic update rather than being a full rebuild and will run at 1080p and 60fps, the co-op Firefight mode from the original game will not be included in the package. There will also be an update for the main bundle which will add the Halo 2: Anniversary map “Remnant” as well as a few additional tweaks. The title update will take up 2GB with ODST taking up around 8.1 GB. What was your experience with MCC? Do you feel this will make up for any problems you had with the bundle at launch?
