CD Projekt RED took to Twitter to address the situation, while in the process dispelling any hopes gamers might have of the game going into beta. “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,” said the developer in the two-part tweet.
Check out the tweets below.
2/2 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.

“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,” added the developer, confirming that any official communication will come directly from the official CDProjektRed.com address. In a separate tweet, a fan asked if there would be an official beta period for the highly anticipated game, to which CD Project RED replied: “We do not have plans for that. Sorry!”
It was recently announced that Cyberpunk 2077 would be pulling its wall running feature from the game due to “design reasons”. Despite the removal of wall running, the game’s level designer Max Pears added that “there’s still going to be a lot of flexibility in how you move, that’s for sure.”
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on November 19 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. PS5, Google Stadia, and Xbox Series X versions are currently in development.
