NieR: Automata Exceeds 5 Million Units Sold
PlatinumGames has officially confirmed that NieR: Automata has officially surpassed all of its other games to become the best-selling Platinum title to date. While NieR: Automata is a relative newcomer to PlatinumGames’ lineup, it’s practically assured to receive a sequel in the future with this tremendous success. PlatinumGames takes the cumulative NieR: Automata sales in their new figure which shows that the game has been shipped/downloaded by over 5 million gamers. NieR: Automata is available right now for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
PlatinumGames took to its official Twitter account to announce to the world NieR: Automata’s success. Their Tweet roughly translated by Google said, “The cumulative worldwide shipment and download sales of ‘NieR: Automata’ has exceeded 5 million units. I really thank you.” Considering PlatinumGames is the studio behind hits such as Bayonetta, Astral Chain, The Wonderful 101, and Vanquish, it’s quite the accomplishment for a relative newcomer to outpace the others to become the best-selling PlatinumGames title.
NieR: Automata also has a “Game of the YoHRa Edition” which includes all of the available DLC and likely helped boost sales of the PlatinumGames title beyond its initial launch. Unlike many other announcements these days, the PlatinumGames announcement of NieR: Automata’s success was met with overwhelming support in the Tweets from fans. Microsoft has been rumored to be interested in PlatinumGames and with the success of NieR: Automata, it’s easy to see why any publisher would be interested in the Japanese development studio that is apparently happy doing its own thing.
