CD Projekt Red expands Cyberpunk 2077 even further with an official novel

A novel based on the world of Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt Red will be released next year.

The official Cyberpunk Twitter account has announced (below) that the novel, titled Cyberpunk 2077: No Coincidence, will be released in August 2023. It is written by Polish science fiction author Rafał Kosik and will tell the story of a group of strangers who discover the dangers of Night City.

Not much else has been said about the novel, but CD Projekt Red has confirmed that a Polish version will also be released. The cover of the book was also revealed, appearing to show two versions of the same character holding a cyborg-like person’s throat.

Cyberpunk 2077 has seen a resurgence recently after its fairly disastrous launch, and CD Projekt Red is now doubling its reach both inside and outside of games.

The developer is currently working on the game’s major expansion, Phantom Liberty, which will be released in 2023 and will continue the story of V and Johnny Silverhand as they swear allegiance to the New United States of America. He also recently announced Cyberpunk 2077’s sequel, codenamed Orion, which he will be developing at his new studio, CD Projekt Red North America, with a team of hundreds of developers.

Cyberpunk also found success with the recent anime series Edgerunners which premiered on Netflix in September 2022.

Its reception may bode well for further adaptations, as in our 9/10 review, IGN said, “Cyberpunk: Edgerunners delivers a satisfying return to Night City that does a better job of exploring why the famously by Mike Pondsmith has become so iconic in the first place.”
