Developer 343 Industries has revealed that the code underpinning its highly limited Insider beta program for the PC version of Halo Reach has leaked online but warned that anyone caught playing it illegally will face a ban when the full game launches.
343 Industries’ Community Support & Engagement Coordinator Tyler “Postums” Davis took to Twitter to say: “It has come to our attention that the Halo Insider flight has been illegally distributed online. If you download or play this illegal copy, we have the right to ban all associated accounts and remove you from all current or future 343 programs.”
According to PCGamesN, [[https://www.pcgamesn.com/halo-the-master-chief-collection/halo-reach-pc-beta-start]] the Halo Reach Insider PC beta programme was so exclusive that it was restricted to less than 1,000 gamers – so if you signed up to Halo Reach’s PC beta but weren’t invited to join the initial run, you shouldn’t feel slighted.
Halo Reach is coming to the PC as part of the Halo Master Chief Collection, and 343 Industries showed a version of the game at this year’s E3. 343 Industries hasn’t yet revealed when any future Halo Reach PC beta programmes will take place, but it has posted a massive development update on the general progress of Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the PC. That includes a long section on how matchmaking will be handled in the PC version of Halo Reach.
