Fans go berserk as Cyberpunk 2077 confirms Keanu Reeves’ return for Phantom Liberty expansion

In case anyone has forgotten, Keanu Reeves was literally the face of Cyberpunk 2077 during the pre-release phase of the game back in 2020. All the trailers, teasers, and promotional clips featured him to generate most of the hype. Not to mention that it worked as well, resulting in a lot of pre-orders leading up to the main launch.

Now it’s been quite some time since the original debut of Cyberpunk 2077 and the open-world title hasn’t performed as expected. Yes, it has arguably become better in terms of gameplay and overall optimization, but other than that, players haven’t had anything else to try out after completing the campaign.

But just recently, the developing team introduced brand new content for the futuristic, sci-fi dystopian project in the form of a proper expansion. Titled Phantom Liberty, it will take the story of protagonist V further after the ending. The news was revealed during the Night City Wire live stream of CD Projekt Red.
