LOS ANGELES—After being revealed as a character in the upcoming video game Cyberpunk 2077, actor Keanu Reeves took the stage at Xbox’s E3 2019 press conference to confirm the game’s PC and console release date: April 16, 2020.

“I’ve got to talk to you about something,” Reeves said to a roaring crowd after his surprise appearance. “CD Project Red, a while back, they approached me and asked me to be part of their project.” After describing the studio’s sales pitch about a massive quest, Reeves explained why he joined the project: “I’m always drawn to fascinating stories.”

He then gestured to a monitor that showed a brand-new “live gameplay” trailer, as opposed to the cinematic trailer that had revealed Reeves’ involvement.
