CD Projekt Red and Netflix have finally provided some video footage of the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 spin-off animated series, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.
Set for release on the streaming platform in September, the show has been confirmed to be a standalone, 10-episode story set in the Cyberpunk universe, and (as you can see from the teaser) is an anime, which will likely add to the appeal for a number of people too.
Per the official announcement from CD Projekt Red:
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners tells a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid trying to survive in a technology- and body-modification-obsessed city of the future. Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner — a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.
The show is created by renowned game development studio CD PROJEKT RED, with Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt creative talent involved in the project.
Bringing the world to life in Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is acclaimed Japanese-based animation company Studio Trigger, with Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare) directing the show. Yoh Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia, BNA: Brand New Animal) is assigned as chief character designer as well as executive animation director. Masahiko Otsuka (Star Wars: Visions ‘The Elder’) and Yoshiki Usa (GRIDMAN UNIVERSE series) are in charge of writing the screenplay based on the story provided by CD PROJEKT RED. The original score is composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series).
