Cyberpunk 2077 Beta Not Happening, According to Developers

Yes, sad to say, Cyberpunk 2077 won’t have any kind of alpha or beta testing for players. This has been revealed via the game’s official Twitter account. And, to be honest, the kind of game that Cyberpunk 2077 is just doesn’t need any beta testing. I’m especially glad that there won’t be any beta, given the current climate of publishers basically selling beta access to players.

We’re all anxiously waiting for the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. I’m certain that there’s a lot of people that can’t wait to get their sweaty mitts on it. I know I can’t. Possibly as a result of that desire, some have asked whether the game is going to have any kind of alpha or beta testing for players. The official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account has effectively put an end to such hopes, stating categorically: “We have no plans for closed/open beta.” Boom. There you go.

Now, honestly, this really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody. Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be a single player-only RPG, by all accounts. What would you need an alpha or beta testing period for? There are no servers to stress-test or anything. Sure, there might be some problems just after the game launches, bugs and glitches and whatnot, but you don’t necessarily need prior testing to solve that. I know that there have been single player games that had betas before, but come on, it’s really not crucial at all. Especially in this climate of selling beta access through preorders. Just be patient and play when everybody else does.

Cyberpunk 2077 has no release date right now. It might come out this year, for all we know. That would really be a surprise. More likely, though, the game is going to launch in 2020 at the earliest. I’m assuming they’re trying to hold off until the new generation of consoles releases. That said, I’m pretty confident that Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be available, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
