A Cyberpunk 2077 Anime is Coming to Netflix

Imagine the scene;

Netflix: “Are you still watching Cyberpunk 2077?”

Nope, it isn’t a dream. A Cyberpunk-based anime is coming to the streaming platform in 2022.

CD PROJEKT RED’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 will also be getting the anime treatment.

As announced by CDPR and Netflix, the series, named Cyberpunk Edgerunners, will launch on Netflix in 2022.

CDPR stated;

“We’re excited to announce that, together with acclaimed Japan-based animation company, Studio Trigger, [and] the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, Netflix, we’re working on a new original anime series set in the same universe as Cyberpunk 2077!

CYBERPUNK: EDGERUNNERS tells a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid trying to survive in 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 series will premiere in 2022″.

This, of course, isn’t the first CDPR IP to have been given the Netflix treatment. The Witcher released to critical acclaim. It even starred Henry Cavill in the lead role.

Obviously, though, with Cyberpunk 2077 coming out this year (delays-not-withstanding), the Netflix adaptation won’t necessarily be as relevant. Then again, The Witcher 3 saw more people playing it last year than on release date. So, what do I know?
