A couple of days ago it was announced that Pokemon GO will finally be shown off at GDC 2016 this year, which suggests that the augmented reality game is shaping up nicely. However, this doesn’t mean that the developers are ready to start pushing out beta invites to the interested players.

There are a number of pages that have gone up in the recent days posing to be related to The Pokemon Company where apparent beta sign ups for the game are being offered. However, all of these pages are fake, The Pokemon Company has confirmed.

A warning was put up on the official website of Pokemon where the developers of Pokemon GO have asked the fans to beware of any and all such signup options because nothing has been announced by the officials yet.

Niantic Labs (formerly Ingress of Google) have also confirmed that details on the closed beta will be shared on the official website, and no where else.

In the past, Niantic Labs have, however, confirmed that a closed beta testing phase for the augmented reality game will be started in these winters – it looks like the scammers decided to take the opportunity instead.

At the same time when the closed beta news was made public by the officials, it was also announced that Pokemon GO will be released sometime early this year. An official release date is yet to be confirmed.
