In Cyberpunk 2077 Keanu Reeves is a ghost that doesn’t “give a rat’s dick how you look”

Keanu Reeves has been the talk of the videogaming contingent of LA ever since he appeared on stage during the Xbox keynote address at E3 2019. Frankly, we’re still a bit stunned even now, but we’re all going to have to get a bit more used to him being around when Keanu Reeves plays Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077.

This is because Silverhand is dead, probably, and lives as a digital ghost inside your head. If you skip to 3:45 in the cinematic trailer – which you can watch in full further down this article – you can see the character’s ethereal body flicker in and out of view, as if it’s a technical glitch. Reeves essentially lives in your brain and follows your throughout your time in Cyberpunk 2077. He even taunts you when you’re agonising over the character creator: “You really think they give a rat’s dick how you look”.

He might be mean – or at least a touch curmudgeonly – but we love him anyway. You’ve got to sympathise with him, actually: Johnny Silverhand, one of the biggest names in the franchise’s lore, died in 2024, over half a century before Cyberpunk 2077 is set to take place. Even more curiously, an in-game radio mentions that it’s “been a year since Johnny Silverhand’s last ride”.
