No, Those Cyberpunk 2077 Beta Invite Emails Going Around Aren’t Real
Developer CD Projekt Red explained that recent emails that are claiming to be an invite for a Cyberpunk 2077 beta are a scam.
As one of the most anticipated titles set to release in 2020, the hype for Cyberpunk 2077 has continued to build as we get closer to its release this fall. While the game has shifted release dates a few times, we’re now (hopefully) only a few months away from getting to experience CD Projekt Red’s futuristic world, which has naturally gotten some fans’ hopes up for a demo or beta beforehand to try out the game. For now there hasn’t been official word yet on a Cyberpunk 2077 beta, even though there are some emails going around that claim to be an upcoming trial for the game.
Over on the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account, CD Projekt Red detailed that email scams have been sent around claiming to be beta invites for the upcoming RPG, which are not real and unaffiliated with the developer.

According to the studio, several emails purporting to be beta invites for Cyberpunk 2077 have been sent out over the past few weeks, with CD Projekt Red detailing that none of these emails are official communication from the studio. Presumably the emails are some form of scam or phishing attempt, so if you’ve gotten a “Cyberpunk beta invite,” it’s best not to open it and put it in the trash bin since they are entirely fake.
At the moment, CD Projekt Red stated that it has no plans for any sort of official beta or demo for Cyberpunk 2077 before its November release. However, after we last saw the game during the first Night City Wire broadcast in June, the studio plans to share some more gameplay footage and information on Cyberpunk with another Night City Wire broadcast in the near future.
Cyberpunk 2077 will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 19, 2020, and will also be coming to Google Stadia, PS5, and Xbox Series X at a later date.
