MS quiet on new Halo beta

Microsoft has remained quiet on rumours that another Halo 3 beta test is currently getting under way.

Word spread after keen-eyed Live gamers spotted others playing something called Halo 3 Epsilon, supposedly later confirmed as a new build of the title by an unhelpfully anonymous email.

According to the mysterious note, Epsilon will let you battle across six multiplayer maps, play custom games, enjoy a single co-operative campaign level, use the Forge feature and get to tinker with the full Saved Film functionality.

They have confirmed this:
The Beta we have already had, were the last Public Beta, and there won't be a Demo. Atleast not for a very long time.

Love the crazy rumors these days. They have no base in reality.

Within Bungie and Microsoft.

Lets all just hold on until September guys in the mean time enjoy Bioshock demo on the 360 and the full game next Friday along with other games ;-)

Theres not going to be another public beta but of course some will believe any rumor thats whispered on the internet.

Build. The take home test version to catch any last bugs. Not a new "Beta"-wrong thing to call it anyway.

You hardly see it these days because schedules are so unrealistic but in a properly managed software development effort you actually test out the finished product before declaring it gold and sending it out.
The last few reports from Bungie said the game was 99% done and they were just polishing up. Probably doing final tweaks on graphics before deciding to lock the frame rate at 60 or 30.
They should be hitting Gold and sending out the RTM version in the next week or so.

That's why it's called Epsilon, right? lol.
Seriously, though, per Kotaku's story on this issue, there was even an internal "delta" test, and that wasn't at all public.

This likely isn't "final" playtesting, though I'm sure they are looking at potential release candidates.
