Keanu Reeves Has the Second Most Dialogue in Cyberpunk 2077

You'll be hearing a lot from Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077.

One of the biggest moments from E3 this week was when Keanu Reeves appeared on stage during the Xbox press conference after it was revealed he would be in Cyberpunk 2077. But Reeves' appearance in Cyberpunk 2077 is no mere cameo. According to CD Projekt Red, he's a full-fledged main character with the second most voice lines in the game.

During an interview with Geoff Keighley in the E3 Coliseum, CD Projekt Red CEO Marcin Iwiński revealed that Reeves recorded about 15 days-worth of dialogue. "He's the number two character in terms of lines of spoken text," Iwiński revealed.

"I think we have something about 15-ish days of voice recording in the studio," for Reeves says Iwiński.

Reeves plays Johnny Silverhand, a main character in the Cyberpunk RPG and lead singer of the band Samurai. Silverhand was supposedly killed some 30 years prior to the events of Cyberpunk 2077, but according to a preview by Rock Paper Shotgun, Reeves' character lives in your head via a biochip. Kind of like Handsome Jack in Tales From the Borderlands.

So, if you were, like us, enamored with Reeves' surprise appearance in Cyberpunk 2077 and at E3, you'll be happy to know that he will factor into the game in a pretty big way.

We'll have a full interview with CD Projekt Red up soon. In the meantime, check out our E3 2019 guide for more news and announcements from this week's event. And check out our Cyberpunk 2077 guide for all the latest on CD Projekt Red's newest RPG.
