Cyberpunk 2077 anime on Netflix - Cyberpunk: Edgerunners

The upcoming anime rendition of Cyberpunk 2077 on Netflix is supposed to feature the story of a street kid in Night City. It is suggested that the story will portray the street-kid's journey to become a mercenary outlaw, also known as a cyberpunk.

IMDB additionally suggests that "Edgerunner" is a clear homage to the 1982 classic, Blade Runner.

Coming from Studio Trigger, fans can expect an authentic anime appearance for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. Some other notable titles from Studio Trigger includes:

  • Darling in the Franxx
  • Kill la Kill
  • Toy Story That Time Forgot
  • Little Witch Academia

The inclusion of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners to this list is certainly a major boost for the Japanese Studio. However, with no further details regarding the series available at this point, there's no saying when the series might drop in 2022.

Nevertheless, given Cyberpunk 2077 and CD Projekt Red's present situation, it would be fairly understandable if the series gets delayed. With a plethora of performance issues and a lawsuit from the investors, CD Projekt Red is currently in a sticky situation.


However, the video game developing company has already been working on Cyberpunk 2077's upcoming game-fixes and patches.

Along with that, the developers are also working on the free DLC scheduled for release in 2021. With so much going on, it remains to be seen when CD Projekt Red reveals further details regarding Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.
