Cyberpunk 2077’s recent resurgence can be attributed in large part to the launch of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the widely acclaimed Netflix anime that triggered a massive boost for CD Projekt RED’s RPG. Edgerunners has, of course, seen impressive success on all fronts since it came out- but is CDPR looking to double down on that success with a second season?

It doesn’t look like that’s part of the plans just yet. Speaking in a recent interview with Famitsu (via VGC), CD Projekt RED Japan’s country manager Satoru Honma said that while he personally would like to work on a second season of the anime, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was designed as a standalone story, which means that for now, there are no plans in place for a follow-up.

“I personally would like to continue to work with Japanese studios to produce more anime in the future, partly because we have received very good feedback,” he said. “However, just to be clear, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was planned as a standalone work, so there’s no such thing as ‘we are actually working on Season 2 in the background.'”

Honma also suggested that if another season of the anime were to be made, it might not necessarily be a continuation of the first, and could end up being a completely separate thing.

“Even if we could make more anime in the future, I don’t know if it would be Season 2 or something completely different,” he said.

Of course, there’s plenty more Cyberpunk content coming up for series fans to look forward to. Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty will launch next year for PC and current-gen consoles, while a sequel will also enter development, with CD Projekt RED’s North American wing taking the reins for the project.
