This was the most anticipated title in 2020 because it was created by CD Projekt RED, the same team that created ‘The Witcher’ game series. Aside from the game’s developers, what made it so famous was an in-game character. This character is none other than Johnny Silverhand, whose face model and voice actor is none other than Keanu Reeves.

The internet erupted when the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer revealed that it will feature the ‘John Wick’ star. But recently another big-name actor has found his way into Cyberpunk 2077. This person is none other than ‘Terminator’ superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger.
