Cyberpunk 2077 spinoff anime series from Netflix is coming

It is no doubt that Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most awaited games of the year that is currently set to be released in November later this year. Many players around the world cannot wait anymore for this video game's release that was originally planned to happen in April of this year. And so while we wait for and at the same time talk about this CD Projekt Red-developed game, Netflix has been busy working with them together with Studio Trigger Inc to produce a spinoff anime series based on its world set in the future and full of tech. 

Officially called Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, this Netflix-produced series has just been announced and is currently set to arrive in the streaming platform sometime in 2022 with 10 episodes in tow. Set in the same futuristic dystopian world of the game, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners follows a story of a street kid in a technology-obsessed world which includes body modification trying to survive by becoming "an edgerunner - a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk." 

The Cyberpunk: Edgerunner anime series will be helmed by director Hiroyuki Imaishi and will be working together with Studio Trigger for the aesthetics of the series. If many are familiar and loved some of the works of this studio such as Kill la Kill and Little Witch Academia, looks like we are also going to like this next project of theirs. 

This is actually not the first time Netflix is developing a series based on video games, Castlevania and of course The Witcher is just two of the most fantastic ones they have produced so far. That said, I have faith in this one and I am just excited. But yeah, it's coming in 2022. 

In addition to the anime series announcement, CD Projekt Red also unleashed a brand new Cyberpunk 2077 game trailer which you can watch below.
