We don’t typically cover video games, but upcoming game, Cyberpunk 2077, is an exception. Pitched as a futuristic Grand Theft Auto, players will be able to walk, drive, and ride around the fictional Night City to do jobs and gain reputation from any one of the gangs and rise up the ranks. The video game is from CD Projekt Red, the same guys behind The Witcher video game series, which is now a Netflix series. In addition, the video game includes John Wick star, Keanu Reeves as one of the characters in the game.
Naturally, vehicles are a vital part of this video game, and with Keanu already onboard, it makes sense to include his iconic motorcycle brand, Arch Motorcycles.
For Cyberpunk 2077, the game will feature a futuristic version of one of Arch’s Motorcycles, the Method 143. Being set nearly 60 years in the future, the designers have collaborated with the motorcycle’s designers to envision what a futuristic version would look, sound, and ride like.
To build anticipation for the game, Arch and CD Projekt Red have released a video of one of their recording sessions for the bike’s sound. The actual sound will be used as a basis for the sound of bike in the game.
Also in the video are Reeves and co-founder, Gard Hollinger, who share how they were invited to join the project and what the game could be like.

As you can see from the photo above, the futuristic Arch motorcycle solid wheels like Kaneda’s bike from the anime movie, Akira, and a few other pop-culture influences, besides boasting of Arch’s distinctive design.
We hear there could be a couple of models included. That’s definitely something to look forward to and try out once Cyberpunk 2077 is launched on the PC, PS4, and Xbox Series X and S, and Google Stadia.
