Cyberpunk Tabletop Creator Will Have A Role In Cyberpunk 2077

Mike Pondsmith, the creator of the original Cyberpunk tabletop game, has been very active in the development of the highly-anticipated game based on his work. There is a lot of material to adapt and a lot of work to be done; however, the world of Cyberpunk 2077 won't just be adapting its creator's mind. 

Cyberpunk 2077 confirmed at E3 this year that Keanu Reeves will be playing Johnny Silverhand, a ghost rockstar who helps the main character on their Cyberpunk journey. In a recent interview with Official Xbox Magazine, Mike Pondsmith confirmed that he does have a role in the game, and that it may include playing bass alongside Johnny. 

"I have a role. I actually recorded for one role, but they came up with a different one for me, but I can’t tell you much more than that. And I’m telling you that because there are a lot of fans who are going, ‘He better be in the game somewhere.' So I’m in the game. I’m figuring what happens is, you know, at some point, [Johnny Silverhand] is playing his guitar and I’ll come out and play my bass [laughs]." 

Hopefully this is not a joke, and we can expect a performance from Keanu and Mike somewhere in the game. Cyberpunk 2077 releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 16.
