Announced two years ago for release in 2022, Cyberpunk Edgerunners is a standalone anime series set in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe.
It’s directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare) and features an original score composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill).
Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red is producing the series, which it has been working on since 2018.

According to the official blurb: “Cyberpunk Edgerunners tells a 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.”
Netflix will show off Cyberpunk Edgerunners on June 8.
It released a teaser trailer for its Resident Evil series last week.
CD Projekt claimed in April that Cyberpunk 2077 has sold over 18 million copies since its December 2020 release.
It also confirmed that is working on a major Cyberpunk 2077 expansion featuring a new storyline.
