Microsoft is warning users today that any website or source claiming to offer access to the Halo 4 Beta program are fakes, designed to trick you into revealing your Xbox Live password. Microsoft has yet to announce or even begin a beta program for Halo 4.
David Ellis of 343 Industries stated on Twitter: "If you see a page claiming to allow you to sign up for a Halo 4 beta be advised, IT'S A FAKE."
It is obvious that any email or website offering access to the beta program is part of a phishing scam. Microsoft will eventually announce and launch a beta program for Halo 4, but nothing has been revealed yet.
This new game, Halo 4, is set to be the first installment in a trilogy and will be developed by Microsoft's own, 343 Industries, rather than Bungie Studios, which was used in the past for previous installments.
