The Halo 5: Gaurdians beta will be released December 19, only to a select few. Those of you who are Xbox One preview members, have been granted this early access. Everyone else, including myself, has an additional ten days to wait. This comes as troubling news.

If you own the Halo: Masterchief Collection, the beta will be available December 29. 343 studios, the company in charge of Halo, has had some setbacks as of late. Their latest game release has been plagued with technical glitches, and a host of other problems. The Halo 5: Gaurdains beta, better deliver a bug free video game. Otherwise, fans of the Halo series may switch to Destiny.

Destiny is game developed by Bungie. Bungie is the original developer of the Halo franchise. Many hardcore fans have stuck with Bungie the whole way through. Bungie may prove to be the better company, but only time will tell.

The fact that 343 studios does not allow all of its fans to play the beta on December 19, is truly a shame. The company has already failed its fans with the technical problems of Halo: The Masterchief Collection, and Lee G. Lovett feels it’s going to be a while before that changes.
