You can’t smooch Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk 2077

File this one under: not breathtaking. You can not - and I can’t stress this enough - shag Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk 2077.

Keanu Reeves plays cybernetic rock star Johnny Silverhand in CD Projekt Red’s upcoming RPG. While the game will feature a bunch of romance options, Silverhand won’t be one of them.

“Keanu plays a crucial role in the game, but as for the option to romance him, I don’t believe you can,” level designer Max Pears told VGC.

It’s not a huge surprise since Johnny is, well, dead. He exists as a digital ghost, a kind of implanted memory or AI that follows you through a large portion of the story. You can’t bone ghosts, never mind digital ghosts, but a few people were likely hoping for some kind of Blade Runner 2049 situation.
