CD PROJEKT RED, the video game development studio behind The Witcher series of games and Cyberpunk 2077, announced the premiere date of their first-ever anime series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.
The show, created in collaboration with Studio Trigger, will debut on Netflix on September 13th. All 10 episodes of the standalone series will premiere at the same time. Alongside the announcement of the official release date comes a bloody and high-octane trailer — intended for mature audiences only.
In addition to the latest trailer, CD PROJEKT RED has also released a brand-new poster featuring one of the key characters of the series — the brilliant Lucy, a skilled netrunner and an important member of Maine’s mercenary crew. Despite her highly sought-after technical abilities, she wants nothing more than to escape Night City and her dangerous past.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners tells the story of David Martinez, a street kid trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. In the aftermath of a personal tragedy, David decides to take control of his own destiny by becoming an edgerunner — a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.
The acclaimed Japanese animation company Studio Trigger collaborated with CD PROJEKT RED to bring the story to life, with Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare) directing the show. Yoh Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia, BNA: Brand New Animal) is the chief character designer as well as executive animation director. Masahiko Otsuka (Star Wars: Visions ‘The Elder’) and Yoshiki Usa (GRIDMAN UNIVERSE series) wrote the screenplay based on the story provided by CD PROJEKT RED. The original score is composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series).
