▷CD Projekt plans further transmedia projects after the success of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners ✔️ WM

CD Projekt recently informed investors during its latest earnings announcement that following the success of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, other transmedia projects are currently planned. This crossover content was released back in September before becoming a smash hit on streaming platform Netflix.

“We are not confirming any concrete plans for a second season of Edgerunners or anything super specific,” CD Projekt senior vice president of business development Michał Nowakowski said in a statement. However, the manager added that “we have an appetite to do more in the transmedia space, so linear visual animation or live action, and those plans haven’t changed, so when we’re ready you can expect us to will make more announcements in this regard.”

The company delivered strong financial results throughout the quarter, largely due to the dramatic increase in Cyberpunk 2077 sales. The connection to the recently released patch and the resounding success of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is obvious, at least for many industry insiders. According to Piotr Nielubowicz, Chief Financial Officer at CD Projekt, the “popularity of the anime series coupled with the positive reception of the update has visibly impacted Cyberpunk 2077 sales.”

CD Projekt’s Country Manager for Japan, Satoru Honma, recently stated that the company has no plans to further develop the story of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the product of a collaboration between CD Projekt and Studio Trigger. “Personally, I would like to continue working with Japanese studios to produce more anime in the future, also because we have received very good feedback,” said Honma.

However, the exec added, “Just to be clear, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was planned as a standalone work, so there’s nothing we’d be working on behind the scenes on Season 2.” Honma continued, “Even if we could do more anime in the future, I don’t know if it would be a Season 2 or something else entirely.”
