Biomutant is an in-development Job with Plenty of potentials. The open-world activity RPG has been created by young studio Experiment 101, led by ex-Avalanche Studios game manager Stefan Ljungvist. Originally speculated to start 2020, Biomutant now seems slated to start in 2021. Nevertheless, it appears that until the Biomutant One release date arrives, it is getting a great deal of focus for an unfortunate reason. It seems scammers are attempting to use expectation for Biomutant to defraud some fans/media.
Wednesday morning, THQ Nordic, Biomutant Writer and parent company of Experiment 101, issued a warning regarding reported fraud efforts.

Further, THQ Nordic means that these emails were sent from the media and/or influencers. A follow-up article on Twitter states that some emails might have promised to include guaranteed builds or documents associated with in-development games, which was obviously complete nonsense. THQ Nordic makes evident it won’t ever send these kinds of emails. Additionally, it mentions the sole official sites for THQ Nordic and Biomutant so that fans can prevent phishing attempts.
These kinds of scams are Unfortunately all too prevalent in the video game market. It also goes both ways, with scammers hoping to impersonate websites and seek to acquire publisher information and public relation experts’ mails and free games. Nevertheless, it is great of THQ Nordic to frighten its lovers around a new wave of spam emails. Biomutant buffs will be better prepared if they receive a deceptive email as they look ahead into the action-RPG’s forthcoming launch.
