Many gamers are eagerly awaiting the release of Cyberpunk 2077 from the Polish company CD Projekt Red. The game promises to become a cult one, because it implements new mechanics, interactions, and a new universe in general, and scammers have begun to enjoy such popularity.
Cyberpunk 2077’s official Twitter account has issued a warning about scammers. This is reported by Informant Tech , citing the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account .CD Projekt Red warns of scammers who send invitations to the Cyberpunk 2077 beta test on their behalf.
These scammers began to send letters allegedly from CD Projekt Red inviting them to the closed beta testing of Cyberpunk 2077. According to the Reddit user who “got access”, the message says that the closed “beta” ends today and you need to run to a separate site to register an account. The page is well done, but the markers of the scammers are the visible password when typing, bad English text and the indicated Android and iOS release platforms. CD Projekt warns that it does not conduct closed testing and does not send out invitations. The company notes that representatives contact players and bloggers through “cdprojektred.com”, and do not use the services of third-party agencies.
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

So, if they write to you about participating in the “beta” of Cyberpunk 2077, especially from a third-party address, then this is a hoax. “If you recently received an email stating that you have gained access to the Cyberpunk 2077 beta, then be aware that it is not from us. Unfortunately, over the past few weeks, such cases have increased. When we contact you by email, the email always comes from @ cdprojektred com. The same goes for content creators. We always contact you directly from the @ cdprojektred com domain. If you are contacted by a third party who claims to be working with us (for example, an advertising agency), most likely you are being deceived, “the developers said.
