CD Projekt will reveal new Cyberpunk 2077 and Edgerunner content on September 6

CD Projekt Red says it will reveal “the sequel” to Cyberpunk 2077 in a livestream next week. Along with its game, the company will also be sharing new information about the Cyberpunk Edgerunners series which is coming to Netflix soon. The new episode of Night City airs at 8 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. ET on September 6.

Cyberpunk 2077 became infamous for its abrupt launch in 2020, with the title having numerous game-breaking bugs that required a significant number of patches to fix. The PS5 and Xbox Series X versions | S from Cyberpunk 2077 went live in February, and the story behind an upcoming expansion appears to have leaked online.

The expansion would take players to the Combat Zone and Sports Dome, two inaccessible areas of Night City, and Keanu Reeves’ character, Johnny Silverhand, could have a smaller role and presence there. As for the upcoming 10-episode Edgerunners series, it will debut on Netflix on September 13.

“In a dystopia riddled with corruption and cybernetic implants, a talented but reckless street kid strives to become an Edgerunner: an outlaw mercenary,” reads the show’s synopsis. Anime producer Studio Trigger — known for Kill La Kill, Little Witch Academia, and several other series — is handling animation duties, and the show’s soundtrack was composed by Silent Hill’s Akira Yamaoka.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was first announced in 2020 by CD Projekt as a show that would tie into Cyberpunk 2077 but feature its own location and original characters. If you want to see the first two episodes sooner and are heading to PAX West in Seattle this weekend, you can watch the first two episodes during a pre-release screen on September 4.
