Watch out for Cyberpunk 2077 beta scams

Cyberpunk 2077 is still a few months away, so scammers are trying to take advantage of eager prospective players, offering them a chance to play early in a non-existent beta. CD Projekt Red posted a warning via the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account that it wasn't sending out beta invites and reiterated that it has no plans for a beta. 

In case one of these gets through your junk filter, first check that it's from and not an unofficial address, and you can safely assume that any mentioning a beta are bullshit. CD Projekt Red added that content creators should also be vigilant and that the studio will always reach out directly, not via a third party. 

So it looks like you'll just have to wait until November 19.  In the meantime, check out our Cyberpunk 2077 hands-on preview and gameplay video.

With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long or talking about his dog.
