As for what we can expect to see? CD Projekt Red says it will be talking about the upcoming anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. The Netflix series is a collaboration with Kill la Kill animation house Studio Trigger, and debuts on September 13. It also just got a very NSFW trailer and hey, it looks neat.
The developer also says it will talk about what’s next for Cyberpunk 2077. That’s a bit intriguing. We know an expansion is still in the works for Cyberpunk 2077, although it’s been delayed into 2023. Considering the history of CD Projekt Red’s expansions, with The Witcher 3 getting absolute stellar ones with Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, a Cyberpunk expansion is intriguing.
This synthetic life
Cyberpunk 2077 hasn’t had as smooth a trajectory, though. Its launch was infamously rough, especially on previous-generation consoles. And while the next-gen update seems to have been a notable improvement, Cyberpunk has still carried the weight of its launch.
Considering the last Night City Wire hosted the reveal of that patch for Cyberpunk, we can probably expect some degree of news for the game. There are still plenty of narrative threads to tug on in Night City, and plenty to explore in that world. I mean, Ciri does mention visiting a futuristic city on her travels.
We will see what CD Projekt Red has in store with its anime and video game soon enough. The Night City Wire arrives just ahead of a big end-of-summer news blitz, which includes a Disney and Marvel showcase and an Ubisoft Forward where we’ll see the next Assassin’s Creed.
