PlatinumGames’ NieR: Automata continues to see healthy sales. On Square Enix’s TGS 2020 Online showcase (which you can see below), it confirmed that total worldwide shipments and digital sales have passed 4.85 million. This is up from the 4.5 million digital sales and shipments reported in March.
First released in March 2017, NieR: Automata launched for PS4 and then PC. It’s set in the future where humanity has been nearly wiped out and resides on the Moon while aliens and their Machines have overrun Earth. The plot follows androids 2B and 9S as they conduct missions, attempting to unseat Machines while learning more about them.
After garnering exceptional critical acclaim, NieR: Automata would come to Xbox One in June 2018. It received a Game of the YoRHa Edition in February 2019 which collected the base game and its DLC (currently 50 percent off for both PS4 and PC via Steam). While a sequel doesn’t seem to be in the works, Square Enix did confirm that NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 would be releasing in April 2021. Stay tuned for more details on that in the coming months.
