Cyberpunk 2077 Adds Keanu Reeves to Its Cast, Coming April 2020

Everyone's favorite actor is a part of CD Projekt Red's next title.

Today during the Xbox E3 press conference, CD Projekt Red not only revealed the release date for Cyberpunk 2077, it also introduced a new face in its cast. Neo himself, Keanu Reeves, will be a cast member in the game, though there are few details on the character he plays. With John Wick: Chapter 3, Toy Story 4, and now this Cyberpunk 2077 announcement, 2019 continues to be the Year of Keanu.

"A while back the guys from CD Projekt Red, approached me and asked me to be a part of their new project. I'm always drawn to fascinating stories," said Reeves onstage.

And while it looked like Cyberpunk 2077 wouldn't be coming anytime soon, that's not the case. Cyberpunk 2077 is coming much sooner than expected. Players can enjoy the game on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on April 16, 2020.
