In a quarterly earnings name held yesterday, Polish studio CD Projekt RED famous that it will be wanting into extra alternatives “within the transmedia house” following the smash success of Netflix anime collection Cyberpunk: Edgerunners — an animated adaptation of the developer’s hi-tech RPG Cyberpunk 2077.
Whereas CDPR has already famous that it doesn’t have plans to supply a second season of the flashy ‘n’ savvy collection, the studio has been made very conscious of the profitable and artistic potential of such initiatives, and, as reported by VGC, has made clear that it is going to be wanting into related variations sooner or later — be it by movie, animation, and/or streaming collection.
Premiering in September of this 12 months, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners provided up 10 episodes of rebellious, electrical motion, successful over followers with its flashy visuals, futuristic vistas, and gun-toting breakout star, Rebecca. The success of Edgerunners is hardly instructing CDPR any new classes, given the worldwide reward heaped upon The Witcher — one other Netflix manufacturing that resides inside CDPR’s massive e book of manufacturers.

Followers of a model in a single type of media are sometimes given to swiftly switching over to a different, and vice versa. As such, we are able to count on to see many extra examples of this within the persevering with period of digital leisure.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is now accessible completely on Netflix.
