Everyone had the breath removed when the exciting movie star Keanu Reeves revealed Cyberpunk 2077's release date on Microsoft's E3 2019 scene. We know that Reeves will play the "legendary rockerboy" Johnny Silverhand, but how CD Projekt Red got the actor to be involved in the upcoming RPG for the first person has been a mystery – so far. We sat down with the senior-level designer Miles Tost to talk about how the Polish developer recruited Reeves.
Reeves is a new addition to the game, just approached a year ago or so. When you asked why Reeves and not another action star was Tost said Reeves the perfect fit. Tost mentions his "rich background [in] cyberpunky stores" ̵
When asked about Reeves' response to CD Projekt Red's request, Tost Reeves said a "super cool guy" who "seems to really realize this and very passionate about the project and the role he plays." where Reeves was "really going into the role", meaningful way that Johnny Silverhand might have.
It is worth noting that, while Cyberpunk 2077 is Reeves latest video game casting, he has appeared in a handful of titles before, including action-adventure games Enter the Matrix, cooperative first person shooter Payday 2, and big-name battle royale game Fortnite.
While the game does not come out next year, Tost says He is sure that the team will pull the project together and send it when it is ready. "Our studio is one that really puts quality above all, and it is also soothing to me as a developer. I know we will not send this game unless it is clear when we decide to send it. players will be able to expect the kind of quality we had with The Witcher 3 and then some. "
Cyberpunk 2077 will be launched April 16, 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. CD Project Red previously announced a North American single PC version, but quickly changed its opinion among fanfare.
