Cyberpunk 2077 is going to feature popular actor Keanu Reeves in a major role, but it seems like he will not be the only recognizable actor in the game.
Speaking with Video Games Chronicle, CD Projekt RED's Alvin Liu teased that more actors may be featured in the game.
Are there any more surprises to come in terms of actors appearing in the game?
Uh… I can’t comment on that! You guys are going to have to wait and see.
Alvin Liu added that any celebrity that has been pursued for Cyberpunk 2077 had to be a great match for the game, and not just to simply increase its audience.
I will say that CDPR is a video game company first and it’s very important to us that the match works. If it was a random celebrity that just wouldn’t work with our franchise, like Britney Spears or something, we wouldn’t pursue that opportunity. So for us, we pursue it because it’s a great match for the game and not necessarily because we want to accomplish some goal with reaching a different audience or anything like that.
Alongside Cyberpunk 2077, Lui also talked The Witcher 3 Nintendo Switch port, stating that the developer is proud of how the port is turning out, despite the compromises that have to be made.
Yeah, we’re really happy with how Witcher 3 is playing on Switch. It’s still at a quality that we’re proud of, but we also understand that there were hardware trade-offs that we had to do, in terms of performance versus graphics. Right now there’s a bit less foliage and some of the draw distances are lower… but it still looks amazing. I was very impressed. Unless you pointed a lot of changes out to me I probably wouldn’t have noticed them.
You’ll get the full Witcher 3 and all expansions. We’re not really cutting anything. The biggest changes that we made involve the user interface and how you interact is a bit different on the Switch compared to other versions. I think if this is your first experience with The Witcher 3, then you’re going to be really thrilled and enjoy it. Our company is pretty proud of what we’ve accomplished.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 20th, 2020
