During Microsoft E3 2019 press conference, CD Projekt RED revealed that Keanu Reeves would be a major part of Cyberpunk 2077. There was a “You’re breathtaking” moment that went viral and now fans have started a petition to make it into an in-game achievement.
E3 2019 happened and CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 was perhaps the most prominent moment of the entire event. Towards the end of its cinematic trailer, it was revealed that Keanu Reeves will be playing a major role in Cyberpunk 2077 as Johnny Silverhand.
Then Keanu Reeves came on stage and talked about the game. He called the futuristic world of Cyberpunk 2077 as “breathtaking”, to which a fan replied out loud “You’re breathtaking!” Reeves, being the humble guy he is, immediately replied with “You’re breathtaking, you’re all breathtaking!” You check out the moment here.
And now thanks to that epic moment, fans have started a petition, urging CD Projekt RED to immortalize it inside Cyberpunk 2077 as an achievement. The “You’re Breathtaking” achievement will be attainable when the player completes the whole campaign in Cyberpunk 2077.
As the time of writing this article, the Cyberpunk 2077 petition has 14,316 signs with a goal of 15,000 signs. In any case, this “You’re breathtaking” during CD Projekt RED’s E3 2019 press conference was very epic. Fans of both Keanu Reeves and Cyberpunk 2077 will remember this even if the petition doesn’t come through.
In a totally separate petition, fans are also urging TIME magazine to put Keanu Reeves as The Person of the Year for 2019. Even though it is a little ridiculous, Keanu Reeves has been trending in these past five years. The actor gained a lot of fame thanks to playing a starring role as Neo in the cult classic Matrix series.
After that, he became two separate memes on the internet. He then starred in John Wick—an action movie that came out of nowhere back in 2014. He then starred in its sequel in 2017—John Wick Chapter 2. And now its third installment, John Wick Chapter 3 Parabellum is in theaters.
CD Projekt RED bringing a trending personality like Reeves will no doubt be great for Cyberpunk 2077 from a marketing standpoint.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person action RPG in development at CD Projekt Red. The game is scheduled to launch on April 16, 2020, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
