Created in collaboration with prominent Japanese animation studio Studio Trigger, all 10 episodes of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will premiere at the same time.
The announcement was made complete with a two-minute NSFW trailer showcasing all of the bloody, high-octane fun that mature viewers can expect to see from the show.
In addition to the trailer, CD PROJEKT RED also released a brand-new poster featuring one of the key characters of the series — the "brilliant" Lucy, who is said to be a skilled netrunner and an important member of Maine’s mercenary crew.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is said to be a standalone story that follows the steps of David Martinez, a street kid trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future.
A tale that should sound familiar to those who played Cyberpunk 2077, Martinez is someone who, in the aftermath of a personal tragedy, is seemingly looking to take control of his own destiny by becoming an edgerunner — a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.
Aside from being created by CD PROJEKT RED, the show brings together a number of well-known creatives, such as director Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare), character designer Yoh Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia, BNA: Brand New Animal), and writers Masahiko Otsuka (Star Wars: Visions "The Elder") and Yoshiki Usa (GRIDMAN UNIVERSE series).
