CD Projekt Red presents news about Cyberpunk 2077. On the Night City Wire event last night the developers not only showed a trailer with new game scenes, but also announced a Netflix series. The anime series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is to be broadcast in 2022 via the video streaming provider – and play in the universe of the upcoming action role-playing game. In ten episodes, Edgerunners is to tell an independent story about a street kid's attempt to survive in a city of the future obsessed with technology and body modifications. Because he could lose everything, he decides to become an Edgerunner: a lawless mercenary, also known as cyberpunk.
The series is produced by CD Projekt Red with a team that also worked on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The work has been running since 2018. The Japanese company Studio Trigger is responsible for the animations of the Cyberpunk 2077 series. Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare) is working on the series as a director. He is supported by assistant director Masahiko Otsuka (Gurren Lagann, Promare), creative director Hiromi Wakabayashi (Kill la Kill), character designer Yoh Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia, BNA: Brand New Animal) and Yuto Kaneko (Little Witch Academia) as well as the screenwriters Yoshiki Usa (SSSS.GRIDMAN, Promare) and Masahiko Otsuka (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare). The series' soundtrack is composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series).
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on November 19 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. A version for Google Stadia is also planned for this year. Console players should receive a free upgrade to PS5 and Xbox Series X. The new consoles will appear at the end of 2020.
