CD PROJEKT RED, TRIGGER, and Netflix today (26th June) announce the production of an original anime series “Cyberpunk: Edgerunners”, based on the upcoming video game “Cyberpunk 2077”. The 10-episode series is set to debut in 2022 on Netflix.
The “Cyberpunk 2077” video game is set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on 19th November 2020.
The anime series is set in the same universe as the video game and is 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.
