Cyberpunk 2077 is one of this year's most hotly-anticipated releases, but unfortunately, that popularity is causing some trouble. According to the game's official Twitter account, a some people might have received invites to a beta version of the game. Problem is, it's all a scam.
Yesterday, CD Projekt tweeted to say that "if you recently received an email claiming to be granting you beta access to Cyberpunk 2077, it's not from us." Apparently, some ne'er-do-well has been reaching out to fans and content creators claiming to be working with the studio, but genuine messaging will always come from CDPR's own email accounts.
1/2 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

None of this should come as too much of a surprise. Cyberpunk 2077 is still several months away from release thanks to its two delays, so the idea that they'd be getting in touch with content creators with code already seems unlikely. What's more, the studio has never publicly mentioned a beta phase of the game. If you get one of those emails and don't fancy getting phished, I'd leave it well alone.
