Keanu Reeves striding onto the stage at Microsoft’s press conference to announce his starring role in Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the biggest moments of E3 2019.

The Matrix: Path of Neo

This was actually the third game based on the 1999 film The Matrix, but it was the first to let you play as Neo, aka the K-man. And Keanu’s chiselled good looks were faithfully rendered in polygonal form.

Payday 2

Keanu Reeves was added as a playable character in the co-op first-person shooter Payday 2 back in 2014. Well, technically it was John Wick who was added, in a move that coincided with the release of the first John Wick film. And the character was properly integrated into the game’s plot, too, with Wick tipping off the character Chains about a raid by Interpol agents.

Fortnite

Keanu appeared game-side again earlier this year in a tie-in with Fortnite to promote the release of John Wick 3. On this occasion, however, the game version of Keanu was considerably more cartoony to meld with the look of the Fortnite universe. The limited-time event saw a John Wick skin being added to the game, along with several challenges and a mode called Wick’s Bounty.

Cyberpunk 2077

As revealed during Microsoft’s press conference, Keanu Reeves will take a starring role in the forthcoming Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt RED, due in April next year. He plays Johnny Silverhand, a sort of digital ghost that lives inside the player’s head and acts as their constant companion. Keanu will be with you, always.

John Wick Hex

Keanu will again star as John Wick in this upcoming game from Mike Bithell, creator of Thomas Was Alone and Subsurface Circular. The gameplay has been described as a cross between XCOM and Superhot, with showy takedowns happening in real-time, but with the ability to pause the game and plan out your moves. And of course, cartoon Keanu is looking lovely as ever.
