343 Industries revealed it has not scheduled a public multiplayer beta for the upcoming blockbuster Halo 4.
“While we are testing Halo 4 code, gameplay, and systems at significant scale to get excellent data, input, and feedback, we are focused on polishing and shipping our experience for the duration of the year, and splitting resources to manage and build a beta is not on our schedule,” a post on the game’s site FAQ reads.
The ream would reportedly have to split in order to make a public beta happen, something the developer does not wan to do.
A Halo 3 beta was included with copies of Crackdown and the Halo Reach was made available to those who owned Halo ODST.
“We plan to test both gameplay and code features rigorously and at a meaningful scale throughout the course of 2015 to ensure a great experience at launch, but we have no plans for a public multiplayer beta for Halo 4,” Microsoft told IGN.
Are you bummed you won’t get to try out Halo 4’s multiplayer in a beta before the game launches?
