Rockerboys and Netrunners have joined forces to release an anime based on last years most highly anticipated game CyberPunk 2077.
Spearheaded by Netflix, the show will be aimed at giving the unsatisfied community something that will replicate the feeling that the game was supposed to impart. Addressing the elephant in the room, CyberPunk 2077 was a disaster, not only did it fail to live upto the hype, it set a precedent for what too much hype can do to a game. The rushed release of the title left many holes that successive patches were unable to fix.
To make up for what was lost, a new TV, on the same genre is set to grace Netflix, which will likely be a follow up to keep the audience interested in this genre.
Story of Cyberpunk Edgerunners
Edgerunners is a 10-episode anime within the Cyberpunk world that tells the story of freshly introduced characters, written and produced in collaboration with CD Projekt RED.
“Cyberpunk: Edgerunners tells a standalone 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.” -MyAnimeList.
There is no concrete release date for the same, but many sources have indicated for this anime to make its way in Netflix by the end of September 2022.
