Do Not Get Fooled By The Potential Beta Scam
Before the release of many games, developers allow players to access a timed demo called beta. This is so that the development team can work out any problems that arise from allowing fans to put stress on small segments of the game. Recently, gamers excited for CD Projekt Red’s new game, Cyberpunk 2077, have been receiving emails of a Beta. Although this is common practice, CD Projekt Red has issued a statement notifying fans that the emails were not sent from them.
In a tweet, the official account of Cyberpunk 2077 warned fans of a potential scam. The company stated, “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.” The developer continued, “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.”
Fans excited to play Cyberpunk 2077 will have to wait for the official release of the game or pick up the comic set to release in September. Although the game has been delayed recently, Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to release on November 19, 2020.
