And if how the studio has handled The Witcher over the years is any indication of at least the level of care Cyberpunk 2077 is in store for, then we're going to be better for it. However, CDPR's relationship with Cyberpunk Pen & Paper RPG creator, Mike Pondsmith, versus how it ended up with The Witcher creator, Andrzej Sapkowski, should at this stage mean we're in for an even more expansive explosion of the larger Cyberpunk world.
Ahead of the recent revelation of the now hotly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 anime series, Edgerunners, it was revealed a Dark Horse-published comic book series, Cyberpunk 2077: Trauma Team, is also on the way, dropping into standing orders and digital collections this September. Here's the synopsis:
Nadia, an assistant EMT for a privately-owned business known as Trauma Team International, is the sole survivor of a failed rescue mission turned shootout. After she agrees to continue work for an upcoming extraction mission, Nadia and her new team find themselves in an even more dangerous and life-threatening situation.
On top of these two transmedia examples, toys from McFarlane Toys featuring V and Johnny Silverhand, which I'll be promptly buying (likely alongside anything else Cyberpunk moving forward.
Ahead of the Edgerunners reveal trailer, here's some official info on the show, but you'll be waiting until 2022 to watch it:
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).
