Consumers hoping to try out Call Of Duty: Black Ops before its release may not want to hold their breath over it.
Treyarch, the development studio behind the eagerly awaited shooter, has said it has no plans for a public beta at this time - despite yesterday's rumours than an open beta would be exclusively available on Xbox 360.
These claims were dismissed during a multiplayer reveal event in Los Angeles, in which the studio detailed Black Ops' new modes and features.
Speaking to CVG, community manager Josh Olin said: "We're already doing an internal beta with all sorts of Activision studios - thousands of people are participating in our beta.
"That's the only formal beta that we're planning at the moment. There were a lot of misconceptions, confusion and Google ads. There was some speculation that we'd be launching a public beta tonight - that's not happening. The beta is internal only right now."
