Cyberpunk 2077 Dev Warns Of Beta Scams

If you got an email claiming to have a beta code for Cyberpunk 2077, it's fake--CDPR has no plans for a beta.


Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has warned users about beta scams related to the much-anticipated role-playing game. Writing on Twitter, the Polish studio said it's aware that bad actors are trying to scam people with fake emails containing codes for a Cyberpunk 2077 beta.

"If you recently received an email claiming to be granting you beta access to Cyberpunk 2077, it's not from us," CD Projekt Red said. "Unfortunately, there have been more of these being sent out over the past few weeks. When we contact you via email, it'll always come from @ cdprojektred com address."

The studio further advised people to stay vigilant about any third-party emails they see claiming to have information about Cyberpunk 2077.

"If you are being contacted by a third party claiming to be working with us (an ad agency for example), you can assume it's not genuine," CD Projekt Red said.

In another tweet, the studio confirmed that it has no plans for a Cyberpunk 2077 beta.

After multiple delays, Cyberpunk 2077 is now slated to arrive in November 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. New versions of the game are coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X later on, and people who already bought the game on console can get a free upgrade.

After the release of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red will release a multiplayer Cyberpunk 2077 game, but basically nothing is known about it yet.
