If you’ve received a message regarding a Halo 4 beta invite, we’d recommend not accepting it. While anything regarding Halo 4 is incredibly exciting, the current supposed “beta” invites going out are nothing but a scam.
Traditionally, invites for a beta have been handled through Microsoft or through the Crackdown series. Unfortunately, there’s not a Crackdown 3 in sight to allow you to grab the beta. David Ellis, of 343 Industries, has confirmed via Twitter that the invites going out recently are in fact a scam.
Any beta invites that are being sent out are attempting to capture your information to hack and sell your account. Microsoft has made no official announcement in regards to a beta, and we’d expect to hear confirmation on its existence closer to E3.
What do you think about the Halo 4 beta scam that has emerged? Do you think that a real beta will emerge from 343 Industries and Microsoft later in the year? Be sure to leave us a comment below to let us know what you think, or discuss Halo 4 in our forums!
