As we continue the long trudge to the 19th November release of Cyberpunk 2077, its developer has provided some words of warning about a series of scam emails claiming to offer beta access to the game.
“If you recently received an email claiming to be granting you beta access to Cyberpunk 2077, it’s not from us. 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. Same goes for content creators. We always reach out directly from @ cdprojektred com domain. 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,” reads an announcement from the team.
The next question some people had was about any kind of official beta from CD Projekt. Unfortunately that’s not happening either. On Twitter the official Cyberpunk 2077 account has told fans that there are no plans for a beta.
While that’s rather disappointing we can understand it from the point of view of wanting to keep as much of the game’s story secret until people can play the finished article. We’ve also heard from developers and publishers in the past that making a vertical slice of the game that’s stable and fun to play, in the middle of development, can be a challenge, especially for big open world titles like this.
For now the best we have is some third party experiences from certain outlets that got to play some of the game early.
Oh, and we can’t end off without mentioning this exchange between publisher Devolver Digital and the Cyberpunk 2077 account.
Oh. Hi. We have a popular YT channel and our own format on Twitch. Please send us 200 CARRION keys (so we can sell them on some shady reseller site). We’d also be willing to do a giveaway.
