The Xbox One beta for Halo Wars 2 is in full swing, but PC players were starting to wonder if developer 343 Industries would show them some love as well. Have no fear, PCers. You will get your beta, but the "when" is still up in the air.
Dan Ayoub, studio chief for 343, told Shacknews in its livestream that the term beta has lost some of its meaning over the years and that the current Xbox One beta is a true developer beta for feedback and changes, as opposed to one released just to gerenate buzz. To accentuate the point, he said an update to the beta has already rolled out today.
"We will have another beta that will be PC that people can hop in on," he told us. The game would be more polished by then, adding "This will be closer to launch. We will react to it. We have really good tuning tools that will allow us to react to feedback quickly."He did not offer any more specifics, however.
That's good news considering the game is Play Anywhere once the game launches on February 21 next year. And the PC beta will offer some consolation for all players who might be disappointed that there won't be any cross-platform play for the upcoming RTS, which 343 is creating in conjunction with The Creative Assembly.
