‎343 Industries Warns of Fake Halo 4 Beta Invites

Posted on January 19, 2012 AT 09:04am

THE BUZZ: 343 Industries has warned consumers against any websites or emails claiming to offer access to a Halo 4 beta, as they are all fake.

“If you see a page claiming to allow you to sign up for a Halo 4 beta be advised, IT’S A FAKE,” said David Ellis of 343.

EGM’s TAKE: Scams like this have been going on for years, with every major title from Call of Duty to Battlefield and previous Halo offerings. It preys on people who desperately want to play the game. As a rule of thumb never sign up to any beta that hasn’t been officially announced, and if you receive an email for a beta always check online first. Nine times out of ten someone else has gotten the same email and will tell you it is fake. Sometimes the fakes are incredibly well done and it’s almost impossible to tell, even taking you to official looking home pages, but always try to use common sense. Until Microsoft or 343 announce a Halo 4 beta is indeed happening stay away from all websites and delete any emails that tell you otherwise. Stay safe out there.
