What has been your favourite game these days? If you are an active gamer, then the news is just for you! Recently, Gamereactor caught up with Cyberpunk 2077’s mastermind who offered an exclusive glimpse about the inclusion of Reeves in the game. What has been the connection behind the incorporation of the actor in there? Any idea? Let me spill the secret about the plot!
Cyberpunk 2077 happens to be an upcoming first-person RPG dealing with a backdrop of dystopian future founded on hi-tech robotics.
Initially, Reeves wasn’t the one
Mike Pondsmith, the designer of the actual tabletop told, “I’ve been interested and amused by some of the castings so far. Keanu Reeves, for example, wasn’t what I originally envisioned for Johnny, but I kind of cracked up when we figured it out because he fit. It was just… “I can see that.” Now, the question is how the Matrix 4 actor was considered worthy in the picture? For that, you need to step out on your shoes once the game hits the shelves!
How is it Keanu and Cyberpunk?
Indeed, Mike was even unaware that Reeves was cast to the team. He spoke about the sudden association saying, “I looked at her (his wife) and said: What? No, he would never do that. That’s, like, beyond our pay grade, he’d never do that. Besides, it’s a Cyberpunk thing, how much Cyberpunk does he do?”. Yes, he himself couldn’t believe that the star would agree to work for the project while the plot deployed Cyberpunk at the forefront. Yet, the sum goes unsolved while dwelling about the legacy’s connection to the game.
But then Mike discovered that it was simply Reeves who would seem perfect for the plot.
What’s the next surprise?
The first Night City Wire episode went on air recently as it is all set to feature multiple levels of customization and player control. Apart from that, the game is expected to earn huge appreciation for its awaited debut which would star some of the most admired roles.
