Don't expect a second multiplayer beta for Halo 5: Guardians

Because there won't be a second multiplayer beta for Halo 5: Guardians.


So said 343 Industries' studio head Josh Holmes to IGN. "We currently have no plans for a second multiplayer beta." There it is in black and white.

The beta specifically focuses on arena gameplay, without a sniff of larger maps or those built with vehicles in mind.

"The Arena experience showcases the core Spartan abilities and mechanics that provide a foundation for other modes throughout the game," said Holmes.

"We’ll have more to discuss on the remainder of our multiplayer suite next year including larger, more vehicle-focused experiences. For now we are wholly focused on the current beta and looking forward to hearing feedback from participants".
