CD Project Reds biggest discovery from E3 was that Keanu Reeves would be in cyberpunk 2077 . It was an incredible moment for anyone who is a fan of Reeves or looking forward to the new cyberpunk game – an even bigger moment for the parts where these fandoms overlap – and according to the developers, nobody would have taken the role of Johnny Silverhand except Reeves. Either Reeves would play the character or it would have been an NPC that has traditionally spoken.
Miles Tost, a senior designer at CD Project Red, who works on Cyberpunk 2077 spoke with Destructive about the studio's decision to make Reeves play a role in the game. Tost said that the goal for the character is not to have Hollywood stars on the A-list, and that Reeves is well suited for the role.
"It was either he or nobody," said Tost destructive. We did not think we needed a star for this role, but, hey, he could be the perfect character, and luckily, everything worked out for us. & # 39; Tost went on to describe the relationship between the two parties and the decision of both to make Reeves "almost organic." After the studio designed the character and story of the NPC, it was for Reeves "really cool" to play the role. [1
"I'm just speculating, but he may have seen the similarities we saw between him and [Johnny Silverhand] and that might have been attractive to him," Tost said. "Except the Johnny Silverhand, lead singer of the Samurai band and one of the great rebels of the cyberpunk universe. A legend. It sounds like a story that might be interesting for someone like Keanu. "
We'll hear a lot from Reeves or Johnny Silverhand, depending on how you prefer the NPC, as it has the second most common dialogue in the game. Reeves has since talked at length about his role in the game and said he does not believe that games need celebrities to get involved, as he did, to legitimize the medium.
Cyberpunk 2077 is due to appear for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms on April 16, 2020.
