GTA 5 PC Beta Download is a Phishing Scam, Confirms Rockstar
Don’t tell me you had clicked on that GTA 5 PC Beta download link although you knew that Rockstar Games has not announced anything regarding a pre-release access to the game?
Well, if you did click, you have landed yourself in trouble; but if you were wise enough to check it out before you actually went on to download whatever it is, be glad you are here.
The download being offered is nothing more than a phishing scam and the game is not going to go live on your PCs before January 27.
Rockstar Games has been perturbed by the fake GTA 5 PC Beta download so much that they have put up a page dedicated to directing the fans against it. Although they didn’t share any other details about the scam as well as the original beta, they had said enough to keep you away from the phishing scam:
Please note: there is no pre-release ‘beta’ test for Grand Theft Auto V. If you see ads or solicitations to join a beta program, beware as this is likely some type of online phishing scam. For all the official details on Grand Theft Auto V, stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire.
The fake beta is being offered through Steam and there even is a screen grab circulating the internet showing people already playing the game.
As for the real GTA 5 PC version, it doesn’t have any beta officially announced by the developers. So if you really want to get your hands on it, you have no other option but to wait until the release day i.e. January 27.
Or maybe you could get your hands on the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game on November 18.
