CD Projekt Red warns Cyberpunk 2077 fans about beta scam

Waiting for a new Night City Wire dedicated to Cyberpunk 2077, the team of CD Projekt RED work continues on the ambitious production, with the promise of not having to postpone further delays.

There are Cyberpunk 2077 emails going around where recipients can sign up for beta access.

"If you recently received an email claiming to be granting you beta access to Cyberpunk 2077, it's not from us", they tweeted. There is no beta and at present no plans for one before the game launches. One person on Twitter reports that someone was trying to license their music for use in the game, also from a random e-mail account instead of from a proper CD Projekt Red e-mail address. "Those of you who are familiar with the way we make games know that we won't ship something which is not ready", said CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiński and head of studio Adam Badowski in a statement. Apparently, some ne'er-do-well has been reaching out to fans and content creators claiming to be working with the studio, but genuine messaging will always come from CDPR's own email accounts.

Well, it seems that the Cyberpunk 2077 protagonist is perfectly aware of this state of affairs, at least just enough to not let your guard down under any circumstances. Nothing is known about the date of the Google Stadia version, while the game will hit PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X when the new consoles go on sale.
