Today brought a wealth of new information on Cyberpunk 2077, but it also emerged as an opportunity for the franchise to open some other doors, chiefly the news of a new anime called Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.

The 10-episode standalone series is headed to Netflix in 2022, and an announcement video revealed that the game will exist in the same universe as the game while featuring its own characters and storylines. The studio handling the anime is the acclaimed Studio Trigger. Animation fans may know their work on releases like Kill la Kill and Little Witch Academia.

We don’t have a lot of detail on the project yet, but it’s exciting to know that the anime already has a distribution plan in place through Netflix when it releases here in the States.

Check out the announcement video for the project below. For more on Cyberpunk 2077, check out our hands-on impressions, our five biggest takeaways, and our podcast exploring our time with the game.
