Initially scheduled for release on September 17th, CD Projekt Red’s highly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed to November 19th earlier this year. With months to go till the official release, it appears that some people have begun receiving emails claiming to provide beta access to the upcoming role-playing game. However, CDPR was quick to shut down the rumours, stating that they have “do not have plans for that”.
Invites to an alleged Cyberpunk 2077 beta began popping up a few weeks back. While CDPR allowed a number of journalists to test an early version of the game last month, the studio never shared any plans for any sort of early access for the general public.
“If you recently received an email claiming to be granting you beta access to Cyberpunk 2077, it’s not from us,” reads a new tweet from the official Cyberpunk 2077 twitter account. “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.”
A follow up tweet reads: “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.”
As for whether or not there will be a beta, CDPR announced that they currently do not have any plans for that. While we won’t get our hands on the game any time soon, what is for sure is that new Cyberpunk 2077 information is headed our way shortly. A second episode of Night City Wire is apparently coming “in just a few weeks”, but an exact date is yet to be shared.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 19th, 2020. Developer CDPR also has plans to bring the game to next-gen consoles with backwards compatibility support for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
