The beta version of Halo: Reach was released a few days ago for less than a thousand people. Everywhere on the Internet there are pirated copies, with which everyone can play a selection of the game. Microsoft is aware of this problem and has promised to rescue the perpetrators.
We have learned that the Halo Insider flight was illegally distributed online. If you download or play this illegal copy, we have the right to block all linked accounts and remove them from any current or future 343 programs.

Today Tyler Davis, coordinator of community support and engagement at 343 Industries, said those who play the pirated beta will be banned. David added, "If you download or play this illegal copy, we have the right to suspend all related accounts and remove you from any current or future … programs." The beta version contains only one mission and is currently only used to test shipping methods.
If your account is suspended, you also lose access to all your digital purchases. Since many players use the same account for Xbox One and the Microsoft Store on Windows 10, a ban can be pretty devastating. Hopefully, those who pirate the game will keep that in mind.
