Just announced at NYCC is the official title for the upcoming Blade Runner sequel and its official release date!
Blade Runner 2049 will release on October 6, 2017.
The title lets us know that the movie is set exactly thirty years following the original which was set in Los Angeles in November of 2019. Obviously this is to explain why Deckard is thirty years older and it will spark a lot of debate among the “Deckard is a Replicant crowd” as thirty years is a lot longer than they’re supposed to live.
As part of the announcement, they released this photo:
