On Twitter today, developer CD Projekt Red confirmed some people have received emails regarding a beta for the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. There’s only one problem with that: CD Projekt Red hasn’t said it will release a beta.
The developer noted these emails are unaffiliated with itself and the game. As such, this could be a scam or phishing attempt on the part of some sketchy individuals. If you receive these emails, your best bet is to delete them from your inbox and not click any link inside of the email.
Here’s CD Projekt Red’s statement on the matter:
2/2 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.
