It has been a popular trend to incorporate the world of gaming into Hollywood or vice versa. Cyberpunk 2077, developed by CD Projekt Red is one such game where the story of a cyborg meets the face of Keanu Reeves. With its unlimited accessibility, players decided to create a mod wherein they can have sex with the character of Keanu Reeves. Here’s what the actor had to say in a reply.

“It’s always nice when it’s nice, it was affection,” said Keanu Reeves

In an interview, Keanu Reeves was asked about his interest in playing games to which the actor replied negatively. Despite starring in Cyberpunk 2077, the actor has never played the game with his character in it.

The actor was clearly happy when the interviewer revealed that he was the most requested character that people would like to have virtual sex with. He also added the benefits of virtual sex! The mod was created by a modder Catmino and was featured on Nexus mod. It essentially allowed players to switch skins of characters and thus, people started swapping the skin of Johnny Silverhand (Keanu Reeve’s character) with one of the robot sex workers.

The mod got so out of hand that CD Projekt Red (also famous for creating The Witcher games) issued a statement and immediately banned the mod from the internet.

“Our most important rule regarding user-generated content, game mods in particular, is that it can’t be harmful towards others. In the case of model swaps, especially those that involve explicit situations, it can be perceived as such by the people who lent us their appearance for the purpose of creating characters in Cyberpunk 2077.”

From his apparent reactions, it is clear that the actor has never played Cyberpunk 2077 before and is not likely to start playing the game anytime soon.

Despite a stable operation now, the opening reception of the post-apocalyptic world-like game was terrible. With bugs, glitches, and frame drops beyond compare, the game had been compared to the final season of Game of Thrones for the irritating mistakes caused due to a rushed release. However, after multiple updates and fixes, the game is in a stable situation now, once the ratings had been affected, the game did underperform compared to the expectations.

As for the action star Keanu ReevesJohn Wick 4 is currently gearing up for a theatrical release next year while seemingly continuing the franchise from where it left off. The film will be held by Chad Stahelski (the previous and only director of the John Wick franchise) and will release in theaters globally on 24th March 2023.
