Cyberpunk 2077 fans can expect even more breathtaking surprises ahead of the game’s April 2020 release date.
Cyberpunk 2077 is one of next year’s most anticipated new releases, especially now that Hollywood star Keanu Reeves is on board.
The Matrix and Point Break actor was announced for Cyberpunk 2077 during Microsoft’s 2019 E3 conference.
And it looks like Reeves might not be the only Hollywood star to appear in Cyberpunk 2077.
In an excellent interview with VGC, CD Projekt’s Alvin Liu explained why Keanu Reeves was such a good fit for the upcoming action RPG.
“We approached Keanu Reeves because we thought he would be a very good match for our franchise,” he said.
“Practically everyone at the studio is a fan of his prior works, whether that’s The Matrix or Johnny Mnemonic, so for us it was just a perfect match.
“He’s obviously a very talented actor and he’s been very diligent with working out how his character would approach certain situations.”
But things took an interesting turn when Liu was asked if any other celebrities would be appearing in the game.
Teasing a potential surprise further down the line, Liu replied: “Uh… I can’t comment on that! You guys are going to have to wait and see.”
CD Projekt is keen to point out that any potential guest star would have to be a “great match for the game”, so don’t expect any old celebrity to make an appearance.
This lends weight to previous rumours suggesting Lady Gaga would have a starring role in the game.
A good fit for Cyberpunk 2077, the rumour emerged after French website Actugaming claimed that Lady Gaga was spotted visiting CD Projekt Red.
According to a source close to the website, the Poker Face singer visited the studio to perform motion capture for the upcoming game.
CD Projekt would add fuel to the reports by replying to a tweet from Lady Gaga.
Maybe we’ll find out more when CD Projekt shows new gameplay footage to the general public.
Unfortunately, however, a hidden message discovered within a Cyberpunk 2077 unboxing video posted by CD Projekt suggests that fans will have to wait until Gamescom or PAX East in August for new gameplay footage.
Then it’s just a matter of waiting for the April 16 release date on PS4 and Xbox One.
