Why yes, Keanu Reeves is Chippin’ In

Our partners at CD Projekt Red rocked the world yesterday with a new trailer for their upcoming video game, Cyberpunk 2077, and the reveal that Keanu Reeves will be playing legendary rockeryboy Johnny Silverhand. Just in case you missed it, here’s the trailer.

So, that’s a thing!

Mike, Lisa, and Cody Pondsmith were present and in the audiences as guests of CD Projekt Red when the big reveal was made.


Honestly, we’re so thrilled we may have to rewrite Deep Space to include a new R. Talsorian Games HQ on Mars because we are over the freaking moon.

But that’s not all!

CD Projekt Red has announced the bonuses for the game and everyone who buys a copy of Cyberpunk 2077, standard or collector’s version, will receive a digital copy of Cyberpunk 2020!


We’ve had a few questions. Why Cyberpunk 2020 and not the upcoming Cyberpunk Red?

Cyberpunk 2077 is being made by fans of Cyberpunk 2020. They played the game and it inspired them. Fond memories of stalking the streets of Night City is what led to the decision to make Cyberpunk 2077.

When it came time to decide what shipped with the video game, CD Projekt Red insisted on providing everyone who played their new creation with the tabletop RPG which led to this amazing project. It is, in short, an homage.

And we think that’s awesome.

Cyberpunk Red, btw, is our upcoming new edition of the classic tabletop roleplaying game of the Dark Future. We’re releasing the Cyberpunk 2077 Jumpstart Kit, a starter box set, at GenCon 2019 and the full core book later. For more information, please keep tuned here and read the Cyberpunk Red FAQ.

We’ll have more about R. Talsorian Games at E3 later in the week! See you soon, choombas!

  1. Hmmmm, Silverhand lives? Well its time to play the speculation game, but first, c’mon the moment he was told to go wash up that screamed trap, at least Dex didn’t monologue. However this is a trailer so anything can happen in it even seeing the huge trap sign and deciding well they went to the trouble i shouldn’t avoid it.
    Back to Silverhand, okay uhm, last i checked Johnny’s top half filed for divorce with his lower halt then the tower was dropped on top of him given where he was when he died. Hell i think even the nuke was on the same floor there would be nothing left.
    So let go through all the options
    1. Johnny’s death is reconned to fix this. In which Johnny would be what in his 90’s, so he took a trip to the Bram Jhonson New Life Clinic?
    2. The Cybergen clone story was true in which case clone #2 has a small gap in his memory.
    3. Son or granson? Takes the name and the arm, then again the arm might be toast so get a replacement and says its the orignal.
    4. Cult leader using johnny’s name for whatever cause he’s after.
    5. The arm survived and we have liquid snake going on, well the arm did seem to talking to Johnny in his last moments so maybe.
    6. V is having all hell of trip as he dies in the room.
    7. Shut up and enjoy getting John Wick as Silverhand.

    Um this refers to the Starter Kit, so if you don’t have an idea when you want CP Red to take place, we going to get several adventures ideas across the 50 odd years to put our characters through?

  2. Silverman a digital ghost like Alt Cunningham,which means technically he could get his body cloned a la cyber-generation…providing there is a DNA sample in cold-sleep.

    Interesting concept, got my std edition on PS4 ordered,nice work CD project and Mike Pondsmith
