If the open world of Cyberpunk 2077 wasn’t enough immersion into the digital underbelly, then Netflix’s upcoming anime spin-off Cyberpunk: Edgerunners should firmly plant you back into the neon grime and we confirm the release date and global release times of the series.
The synopsis of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners reads: “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.”
Directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi and Hiromi Wakabayashi and created by Rafa? Jaki and Studio Trigger for Netflix, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is an anime spin-off series set in the universe of CD Projekt Red’s action-RPG Cyberpunk 2077, that takes place in the open world of Night City.
