Whereas CD Projekt RED’s sci-fi epic Cyberpunk 2077 had one thing of an inauspicious launch, (to place it calmly), the identical can’t be mentioned for its animated spin-off Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, which launched to rapid reward from critics and audiences upon its launch to streaming service Netflix.
Nonetheless, regardless of the followers’ immediate love for its dazzling Day-Glo visuals, nihilistic aesthetic, and manic breakout star, Rebecca, it appears that evidently additional adventures of David Martinez and his anarchic military are unlikely. In an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu, CDPR district supervisor Satoru Honma acknowledged the success of the Studio Set off-produced sequence, however famous that there are presently no plans to increase its now-told story.
“I personally wish to proceed to work with Japanese studios to supply extra anime sooner or later, partly as a result of we’ve got acquired excellent suggestions,” mentioned Honma (translation by way of VGC). “Nonetheless, simply to be clear, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was deliberate as a standalone work, so there’s no such factor as ‘we are literally engaged on Season 2 within the background’.”
Honma notes that whereas it’s not unattainable that additional Cyberpunk 2077 anime could also be produced, it’s simply as probably that it will characteristic a separate standalone story set towards the neon-stained backdrop of Night time Metropolis, quite than a continuation of the characters and occasions featured in Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. There’s clearly a lot to be explored within the Cyberpunk 2077 universe, and whereas we should always by no means say by no means on this extremely profitable world of media streaming, it’s potential that the Edgerunners’ chronicle has reached its clear conclusion… No extra Rebecca? Don’t inform the internets.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is offered to stream now on Netflix. Cyberpunk 2077, which has acquired a brand new lease of life within the wake of the present’s success, is offered now on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
