Cyberpunk 2077 live-action project unveils expected release window
Cyberpunk 2077 remains one of the most beloved RPG series ever created and its publisher CD Projekt has taken steps to expand upon it as much as possible.
Not content with just enjoying Cyberpunk 2077 video game or its recent Phantom Liberty expansion, fans of its sci-fi world can also take pleasure from viewing Edgerunners Netflix anime series or playing tabletop board games and novels set within it.
Back in October 2023, creators of Mr Robot and Anonymous Content made public their plan for an all-live-action Cyberpunk adaptation – either series or movie format is yet unknown; only time will tell!
“CD Projekt is excited about their ambitious plans of producing a live action project set within the Cyberpunk universe and are delighted that Anonymous Content, with their excellent expertise, can assist them,” noted Michal Nowakowski, CCO and Board Member at CD Projekt in a press release.
No one knows whether the Cyberpunk live-action production will take the form of a series or movie; we do know, however, when it will be released; recent financial reports imply it could come out no earlier than 2025.
“To extend and further the Cyberpunk IP, we plan to engage it through activities beyond games within its franchise flywheel that we currently have running. While I won’t reveal specifics here, one direction we may be heading next year includes working with Anonymous Content; though that won’t be our only focus; more will certainly follow as 2024 approaches – things will definitely not remain calm,” Nowakowski shared.
Nowakowski teased other projects he will work on next year and beyond, including Cyberpunk: Edgerunners on Netflix (my personal hope). However, fans can already take pleasure in playing Cyberpunk 2077 across PC, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms.
