CD Projekt Red 'Lied' About Keanu Reeves Playing Cyberpunk 2077

Just when you think the Cyberpunk 2077 controversy has died down, someone comes along and chucks another barrel of fuel on the fire. This time though, it comes courtesy of a Hollywood A-lister.

Following the success of CD Projekt Red's The Witcher franchise, the developer moved on to a video game adaptation of the Cyberpunk tabletop series. Cyberpunk 2077 was announced all the way back in 2012, and while there were high hopes, a myriad of delays and technical difficulties saw it dragged across the coals. 

Thankfully, Cyberpunk 2077 had an ace up its sleeve in the form of Keanu Reeves. As well as playing Johnny Silverhand in the main story, Reeves seemed a strong supporter and avid player of the troubled title. But, actually no. That’s not the truth, Ellen.

Has Keanu Reeves Played Cyberpunk 2077?

In an interview with The Verge to promote The Matrix Awakens, Reeves says he never plays video games. Jumping in on the matter, he was asked about Cyberpunk 2077, where he gave the following response: "No, I mean I've seen demonstrations, but I've never played it."

Well, someone has been telling porky pies. Reeves' latest revelation goes directly against what CD Projekt President Adam Kicinski said last year. Not only saying Reeves had played the game, Kicinski told investors the star "loves it."

There's some unfortunate timing for CDPR, with Reeves inadvertently dropping the developer in some hot water. The actor's honesty comes after investors launched a court case against CDPR for apparently misleading them over the state of Cyberpunk 2077 and what it could deliver.

Could CD Projekt Red Get In Trouble Over The Reeves Claims?

Claimants are adamant that the developer knew about the "unplayable" state of the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but continued with release anyway. Even if saying Reeves played the game is only a minor fib, you could argue it played a part in trying to drum up sales - especially with the idea he loved it.

Things might've gone quiet on the Cyberpunk court case, but in a bizarre turn, the game is actually doing pretty well right now. With CDPR tinkering away behind the scenes, the recent Black Friday Steam sale saw the game drowned in an influx of positive reviews. It even led to Cyberpunk 2077 trending on Twitter (for all the right reasons).

Reeves has already shown his disdain for video games, with his likeness being used in previous Matrix and Constantine titled without his voice. A voiceless John Wick then appeared as a skin in Fortnite. Most recently, he said he wouldn't want Neo or John Wick to appear in Mortal Kombat. Well, at least he said "it's nice" that people are trying to have sex with him in Cyberpunk 2077.
