Next Week's Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire Episode 5 Is All About Keanu's Johnny Silverhand
This newest Night City Wire episode will air on Twitch, just like previous episodes, so you know exactly where to tune in. During this episode, the CD Projekt Red team will be talking more about the music that will set the atmosphere for the game, but perhaps the biggest takeaway is that the episode will focus on Johnny Silverhand.

Johnny Silverhand was a rock musician (he was the front man for the band Samurai), a former military man, and a cult hero that was killed by a Borg name Adam Smasher. However, Silverhand returns in Cyberpunk 2077 as a digital ghost to the main protagonist (this is made possible by a chip implant). He will serve as somewhat of a guide and motivator along your quests through Night City.
The cool thing about Silverhand, however, is that he is voiced by Keanu Reeves and even takes on his likeness. Well, minus the wicked cool cybernetic arm that Reeves obviously doesn't have in real life (that we know of...). Besides the music and expanded details on Johnny Silverhand, CD Projekt Red says that you should expect "a lot more" during the episode.
CD Projekt Red announced its latest delay for Cyberpunk 2077 back in late October, pushing the launch date from November 19th to December 10th. At the time, the dev team explained that "Since Cyberpunk 2077 evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way, we need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly. We're aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do."
The devs later explained that they are confident that the new December 10th launch date will stick, although we're not going to hold our breath on that one. Cyberpunk 2077 will be launching with compatibility across Xbox One/X, Xbox Series S/X, PS4/Pro, PS5, PC, and Stadia platforms. In fact, it will be available on Stadia on the same day that it launches for PC/console platforms.
