Netflix aboard Cyberpunk 2077 series

The Cyberpunk: Edgerunners game will be released in 2022

Netflix, CD Projekt Red and Studio Trigger are producing an anime series set in the same universe as forthcoming game Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will premiere in 2022 and tells a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid trying to survive in a city of the future obsessed by technology and body modification.

Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner, a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.

Warsaw-based CD Projekt Red, the company behind the Cyberpunk 2077 video game, is producing the series, with a creative team formed of talent from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077.

The team at CD Projekt Red has been working on the new series since 2018, Netflix said.

Japan-based animation company Studio Trigger will serve as the animation studio.

Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare) will direct the series along with 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).

The adapted screenplay comes from Yoshiki Usa (SSSS.GRIDMAN, Promare) and Masahiko Otsuka (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare). The original score will be composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series).
