GTA V Will Have No Pre-Release Beta Tests
This is a friendly reminder to inform everyone that the upcoming GTA V release for the current-gen consoles and PC will have no beta testing. Those expecting to warm up by accessing the overhauled versions prior to release will just have to wait for the official release.
The information comes from the official GTA V website that boldly puts the following out there:
“PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO PRE-RELEASE ‘BETA’ TEST FOR GRAND THEFT AUTO V.”
The page also warns everyone to beware of scams and phishing attempts where suspicions mails and links are forwarded that claim to give access to early beta events. These links usually infest your systems with trojans and viruses and lead on to mine data or worse.
Since Rockstar Games has blatantly stated that there will be no beta events, make sure to disregard any invitational emails.
GTA V is scheduled for release on November 18 in North America for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One; while the PC version will arrive late on January 27, 2015.
