Animation show Cyberpunk Edgerunners is streaming on Netflix starting today, nearly two years since the major tudum as well as Cyberpunk 2077 creators CD Projekt announced they would be working together. The show might have made it to whatever the internet’s equivalent to the 21st century is, and is now tangible media that we can consume today however CD Projekt have confirmed in their earnings call that they are continuing to be “fully determined” to this show. Cyberpunk IP. I’m shocked that I’ve wrote the word IP.
Edgerunners is a ten-episode series about David, a young man who experiences a tragedy which inspires him to become one of the techno-mercenaries who are the title. David joins forces with an group of rag-tag of no-goodniks in order to survive in street corners of Night City, the very the same area inhabited by Cyberpunk 2077’s V as well as their friends. A few of them even have appearances. Netflix as well as CD Projekt tasked Kill La Kill and Darling In The Franxx animators Studio Trigger to create Edgerunners and If are comfortable to Trigger or their cyber-broom you’ll be able to know.
CD Projekt revealed an Edgerunners-themed free update for Cyberpunk 2077 this week. They also showed an official trailer for the very first and only Keanu-starring game expansion also, Phantom Liberty. Doesn’t this sound like an Metal Gear game? However CD Projekt’s vice president of business development Michal Nowakowski, claimed in an online streaming earnings call this week that the company is “fully completely committed” to further Cyberpunk (thanks IGN). This is despite the fact that they have only developed the one major expansion to the game.
“We’ve invested a lot of effort and effort into creating this brand and we intend to build on what we have built up to now , with fresh stories, experiences, and new content generally,” Nowakowski said. “Not only the format of video games… Regarding expansions, there’s likely to be one big expansion. But, there will be new things in the near future.”
Cyberpunk Edgerunners can be streamed on Netflix right now. I know this since I snooped around on my phone. The first episode is in Japanese with subtitles, so you don’t need to alter any thing.
