The news was shared by the developer in its latest Halo Bulletin. If you’re worried that the game might suffer because of it, 343 assures gamers that they are testing Halo 4 at a “significant scale.”
Here’s what the official response is on why the game won’t be getting a beta.
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.
Halo 4 is due out this coming holiday exclusively for the Xbox 360.
