Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime produced by Studio Trigger announced

Set to premiere on Netflix in 2022.



CD Projekt RED, Studio Trigger, and Netflix have announced Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, a standalone, 10-episode story anime set in the same universe as Cyberpunk 2077. It will premiere in 2022.

Here is an overview of the anime, via CD Projekt RED:
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners tells a standalone, 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.

CD Projekt RED, the company behind the Cyberpunk 2077 video game, is producing the series, with a creative team formed of talent from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Cyberpunk 2077. The team at CD Projekt RED has been working on this new series since 2018.

Acclaimed Japan-based animation company, Studio Trigger, will serve as the animation studio on the series and bring the world of Cyberpunk to life with their signature, vibrant style. Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare) will direct the series along with assistant director Masahiko Otsuka (Gurren Lagann, Promare), creative director Hiromi Wakabayashi (Kill la Kill), character designers Yoh Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia, BNA: Brand New Animal) and Yuto Kaneko (Little Witch Academia), and the adapted screenplay by Yoshiki Usa (SSSS.GRIDMAN, Promare) and Masahiko Otsuka (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare).

The original score will be composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series).
“We are so excited to finally reveal that we are working on an anime in the Cyberpunk world,” said Cyberpunk 2077 game director and CD Projekt RED head of studio Adam Badowski in a press release. “We’ve devoured just about all the cyberpunk fiction there is to watch, read, and play; it’s a genre that leaves so much room for creativity, and has had such a strong influence on us. Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is our love letter to cyberpunk as a whole, and to stories told in animated form.”

Studio Trigger CEO Masahiko Otsuka added, “We at Trigger are thrilled to work with CD PROJEKT RED to create a brand-new story set in the world of the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077. It’s a huge challenge to adapt this universe into an anime, but we are eager to face it head-on.”

And Studio Trigger director Hiroyuki Imaishi noted, “I’ve always loved cyberpunk as a genre, but always found it difficult to create as an original work. This is why I’m very excited to be working with CD Projekt RED on this project. It won’t be easy to please both game and anime fans, but I love a challenge, and I’m looking forward to the production. We’ll do our best to meet and exceed expectations.”

The story will probably be good. They said they have been working on it a long time and there's still a couple years to go before release. A must watch for me.
