"Not on the schedule," confirms dev.

Unlike Halo: Reach and Halo 3, there will not be a public beta for 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,” said 343 Industries franchise development director Frank O’Connor in a Halo bulletin (via VG247), “and splitting resources to manage and build a beta is not on our schedule.”

Halo 4 is due for Xbox 360 this holiday season.

    So we can expect crazy glitches and exploits within the first few weeks of release now? Wonderful.

    Great job in filling Bungie’s footsteps, 343. Seriously, great job guys.

    343 seems to be trying to ruin halo. =\

    Wow, things really are not looking to good for MS’s 1st party titles. 343 is not gaining any favor with fans with this news and with Peter leaving Lionhead “Fables” future is in the dark as well.

    This is why MS should focus on developing new 1st party IP’s.
