Fortunately, Rowell realised he was dealing with a fraudster straight away and took the opportunity to mess with "Mr. Porowsi" a little before reaching out to CD Projekt RED to let them know what was going on. And it is that despite the fact that some users have received an email in which they are assured that they have been chosen to enjoy the beta, nothing is further from reality.

Cyberpunk 2077 is the latest example of this, with CD Projekt Red warning against fake beta scams. Unfortunately, several emails of these have been sent in the past few weeks. However, CDPR was quick to shut down the rumours, stating that they have "do not have plans for that".

Scheduled for release in November 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most hyped games of the year. There is no beta and at present no plans for one before the game launches. Some lowly scammers are taking advantage of this anticipation, and have been using it to target players through emails that falsely claim to be granting access to the Cyberpunk 2077 beta.

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 email.

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. 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.
