Cyberpunk 2077 is getting a comic book series that ties in to the game before it launches later this year. Dark Horse Comics recently created a listing for the comic series and it's called Cyberpunk 2077: Trauma Team. The series will be about an assistant emergency medical technician on a failed rescue mission, presumably in Night City, the game's main setting. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=7-cyberpunk-games-to-play-while-youre-waiting-for-cyberpunk-2077&captions=true"] "Nadia, an assistant EMT for a privately-owned business known as Trauma Team International, is the sole survivor of a failed rescue mission turned shootout," the listing reads. "After she agrees to continue work for an upcoming extraction mission, Nadia and her new team find themselves in an even more dangerous and life-threatening situation." This is the listing for the series' first issue. It's unknown at this time how many issues will be in this series. The team behind the comic is writer Cullen Bunn, who wrote Dark Horse's Harrow County and Marvel's Uncanny X-Men in 2016, and illustrator Miguel Valderrama, who illustrated Dark Horse's Giants. This "new series based on the highly anticipated game" will be released on September 9 later this year with a price tag of $3.99 for issue one, which will be 32 pages long. The September 9 release date makes sense when you consider that Cyberpunk 2077 was set to be released on September 17 after a delay from its original April release date. The game was recently delayed once more to its new date of November 19.
