Long before Cyberpunk 2077it is sadly terrible launch, everyone thought it would lead to another massive franchise with spin-offs galore. Maybe the brand isn’t as big as CD Projekt Red hoped, but hey – at least the new anime series Cyberpunk: Edge Runners looks decent.
On Monday, Netflix announced that Cyberpunk: Edge Runners will be presented during Geek Week 2022, from June 6 to June 10. Studio Trigger, the legendary anime company that brought us kill her kill her and Little Witch Academy, is behind this one. There aren’t many plot details about this one other than it will be a standalone story set in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe.
Netflix’s Geek Week 2022 also got a trailer, which features some snippets of Cyberpunk: Edge Runners pictures. Check it out below.

We can’t get much out of it, but if nothing else, Cyberpunk: Edge Runners should be gorgeous. Studio Trigger is somehow known for releasing some of the best anime series around. silent Hill Composer Akira Yamaoka is also working on it, so the soundtrack should slam.
The timing is pretty solid too. Cyberpunk 2077 will be part of the PS Plus relaunch, and the expansion is coming next year.
