Cyberpunk 2077 won't get a beta, fans warned of scam emails

The most concerning is an increasing number of people receiving invites to a so-called Cyberpunk 2077 BETA test via email.

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.

Writing on Twitter, the studio made it clear that any announcements regarding the game would never come from a third-party account, but instead via a CDProjektRED.com email.

These aren't ultimately too different from the infamous Nigerian Price emails of the early 2000's, but it's always important that you should look at precisely what domain an email is coming from. CD Projekt Red, the game's developer, confirmed this is an issue and told people not to believe its contents. Unfortunately, several emails of these have been sent in the past few weeks.

Develver Digital, the japesters of the game industry, commented on the post and got an equally playful reply.

The anime will be an original and standalone 10 episode story set within the Cyberpunk 2077 universe.

Oh, and we can't end off without mentioning this exchange between publisher Devolver Digital and the Cyberpunk 2077 account.

Even massive names are being stonewalled from the legendary Polish studio: Cyberpunk 2077 is currently tightly locked up, and will likely remain as such until moments before the official launch (which is now in November, as the title apparently failed a T90-day check again). Following that, CD Projekt Red also revealed a new gameplay element, the investigative Braindance, letting you inhabit someone's recorded memories and then step outside their body to view the surrounding scenery and the periphery of those events.
