Cyberpunk 2077 hit everyone, at the last E3, for various reasons, but above all for the announcement of the presence of a character played by Keanu Reeves. Rumors of the presence of big names in the game had been going on for months, and now also included Lady Gaga, the famous singer. The enthusiasts had reacted with great enthusiasm to these rumors, beginning to seriously hope that Gaga had some role in Cyberpunk 2077. Now, CD Projekt RED comments on the matter.
Speaking is Alvin Liu, the game’s interface coordinator, who says:
“[Lady Gaga] is pretty cyberpunk, so it would fit well! But … I’m sorry, no Lady Gaga.”
Liu then commented on Reeves’ presence, stating:
“Many people in the studio love The Matrix, Johnny Mnemonic, Speed and all those things and [Keanu Reeves] was a really good choice for our game and for what we are doing. When we approached he said something like, “Yes, I understand the artistic vision behind this project, I can enter it.” He immediately entered, it was great. “
As for the sound sector, we won’t be able to count on Lady Gaga, but the in-game band Samurai will get vocals, music, and features from the Swedish hardcore band Refused. There has been hinted that there is still something to be revealed and that, perhaps, there will be other big names in Hollywood or in the entertainment world within the game. But we will have to wait to find out what CD Projekt RED has in store for us.
We remind you that Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 16th 2020. Tell us, what do you think? Are you sorry for the absence of Lady Gaga? What famous faces would you like to see in the game?
