CDPR Is Reportedly Planning To Make More Cyberpunk 2077 Anime In The Future

A lot is going on in the Cyberpunk franchise.

Story Highlights

  • The CDPR team is looking to make more content from the Cyberpunk series alongside the planned sequel and the live-action show.
  • We will seemingly learn more when the time comes when there is a concrete announcement or something important to speak about.
  • The anime is rumored to be either the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners’ second season or something else altogether. An interview from last year hints towards the possibility of the latter.

The CDPR team is interested in making more content from the Cyberpunk series alongside the planned sequel. Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was a huge success for the studio, and it wants to work on creating more anime in the future, as initially noticed by VGC. In a Q&A investors meeting held recently, CD Projekt’s chief commercial officer, Michal Nowakowski, clarified that the studio has big plans for growing the IP.

The company wants to expand the content for the franchise beyond the upcoming Project Orion, the awaited Cyberpunk 2077 sequel. The team is already working with the global media company Anonymous Content to develop a live-action project set in the world of its video game.

Yes, we do have plans. That’s why we have started cooperating with Anonymous Content [on the live action show]. We want things to happen. […] A lot is happening, a lot is planned. Trigger was in 2018 but [Edgerunners] started in 2022, so for a number of years we did not speak about this because it wasn’t ready,” said Michal Nowakowski.

The dev stated that CDPR would prefer to keep its projects under wraps until a significant announcement is on the horizon with concrete info that warrants a reveal. He further ensures that the plans for more Cyberpunk content will be announced in the future when the time comes and cannot speak beforehand.

When the time comes, we’ll tell you. I know I keep repeating it, but yes, the general direction is this – to go this way, this is strategically important for us.”

The chief creative officer, Adam Badowski, also chimed in and clarified that Studio Trigger [partner for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners] has certain rules for announcing projects that need to be followed. The wording seems to imply that Cyberpunk 2077 devs are already working on another unannounced show that is likely an anime. However, an interview from last year with Famitsu suggests it will likely not be the second season of Edgerunners.

I personally would like to continue to work with Japanese studios to produce more anime in the future, partly because we have received very good feedback. However, just to be clear, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was planned as a standalone work, so there’s no such thing as ‘we are actually working on Season 2 in the background,'” said Satoru Honma, the Edgerunners producer.

The producer further clarified that it is currently unclear even if more anime will be produced and whether it will be the next season of Edgerunners or “something completely different.
