Sorry Kids, Doesn’t Look Like NieR: Automata Will Land on Xbox One and NX

Earlier this week it was announced NieR: Automata, the upcoming action-RPG from Square Enix and PlatinumGames Inc, will launch on Steam for PC as well as the PlayStation 4 in early 2017.

Today at Gamescom 2016, NieR: Automata Producer Yosuke Saito indicated there are no plans to port the game to the Xbox One and NX. He did; however, say that if NieR: Automata is successful worldwide, it could happen. So the possibility is not zero. Saito-san also clarified that the team has been considering a Steam release from the very start of the project. The PC version will be developed by PlatinumGames as well, so fans shouldn’t worry about the quality of the port.

In the forsaken wasteland below, the war between the machines and the androids rages on. A war that is soon to unveil the long-forgotten truth of this world…
