CD Projekt Red warns Cyberpunk 2077 fans about beta scam

"If you recently received an email claiming to be granting you beta access to Cyberpunk 2077, it's not from us", they tweeted.

The scam has worked more than it should, however, as scams tend to; Cyberpunk 2077 is drawing in the wrong crowd as the title already appears to have worldwide recognition.

At this stage, there is no confirmed beta test nor any hints towards an upcoming one. "Sorry!" which certainly shuts down any hope for one.

Cyberpunk 2077 developers CD Projekt Red have confirmed that they now have no plans to release a beta for their highly anticipated game, meaning you're out of luck if you were hoping to play the game before it launches on November 19th. "When we contact you via email, it'll always come from an @ cdprojektred com address".

HARVEY UPDYKE Auburn Tree Poisoner DEAD AT 71
On Thursday, Alabama fan Harvey Updyke , who was known as the Toomer's tree poisoner, died at the age of 71. According to AL.com, Updyke has so far paid $8,143 of the $800,000 fine levied on him.

Initially scheduled for release on September 17th, CD Projekt Red's highly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed to November 19th earlier this year. A second episode of Night City Wire is apparently coming "in just a few weeks", but an exact date is yet to be shared.

"Same goes for content creators". "If they contact you through third parties and claim they are working with us (an agency, for example), you can assume it is not real".

Cyberpunk 2077, an open-world RPG set in a dystopian world, has been in development since at least 2012 when it was first announced as a follow-up to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The game will also be available for the PS5 and Xbox Series X as an upgrade in time for launch, with a more robust version arriving in 2021.
