Nier: Automata Sells Over 2 Million Copies Worldwide

Nier: Automata Sells Over 2 Million Copies Worldwide

About a month ago, Platinum Games co-founder Hideki Kamiya thanked fellow developer Yoko Taro for his work on Nier: Automata, as Kamiya-san went so far as to say that the title’s success effectively saved the studio. Now, the good times continue to roll for the company in addition to the team behind the action-RPG, as its publisher Square Enix has announced that the release has managed to sell over 2 million copies worldwide.

The financial figure not only covers digital purchases, but also physical units shipped to retailers around the globe as well, meaning that Nier: Automata went on to sell another million units since its last reportage of sales numbers back in May. So, in order to celebrate this particular feat, Square Enix is putting the game on sale through Steam and the PlayStation Store for 35%-36% off for gamers who have yet to experience it.

Since Nier: Automata has now been established as a hit both in terms of sales and critical acclaim (we here at Game Rant gave it a perfect review score), most fans are looking ahead at the future of the franchise, with those who have experienced the title wondering whether or not Platinum Games will eventually put out a followup. Interestingly enough, a recently posted job post for Business Division 6 by Square Enix points to some sort of new Nier: Automata-related content being developed, with many believing that the listing is possibly a direct sequel.

Whatever fate may hold for Nier: Automata‘s future, one thing for certain is that Platinum Games has managed to exceed expectations by thrusting what was originally a cult-RPG property (the initial Nier came out in 2010 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360) into the limelight. With any luck, the developer will continue the series with an even better followup sometime down the line.

Nier: Automata is available now for PlayStation 4.
