As per the gameplay, the locales of Night City, both day and night look extremely impressive.
Furthermore, according to a report by Eurogamer, it seems that Keanu Reeves is in the Cyberpunk 2077 canon as well. This includes Keanu Reeves the actor as well as Johnny Silverhand, the character real-life Keanu Reeves plays in the upcoming CD Projekt game.
The development was highlighted after the recent release of the music video for No Save Point by Yankee and the Brave, the Cyberpunk group played by the Amercian hip hop supergroup Run The Jewels. No Save Point is a song that will be heard in Cyberpunk 2077.
According to Patrick K. Mills, Cyberpunk 2077 senior quest designer, the lyric is an in-universe cultural reference to Keanu Reeves, “a little known Collapse-era actor who bore an uncanny resemblance to Johnny Silverhand”. In the Cyberpunk universe, Keanu Reeves was frequently mistaken for Johnny Silverhand in the years following Johnny’s disappearance.
