I only recently started playing Nier: Automata, and from what I’ve seen, it seems like I’m in for one helluva ride. So I’m quite happy to hear that a sequel to the game might be in the works.
A recent job-listing at Square Enix’s Business Division was picked up by NeoGaf user DKHF, who managed to translate it as well. The position at Square is listed as ‘Nier scenario staff’, but not more is really said about it.
It should be noted that Business Division 6, the division recruiting for the position, is the folks responsible for Nier, but that is not their only designation. But there are several things pointing to the possible sequel, or at least another entry into the series, especially if you consider the position’s listing title. Nier: Automata was developed by Platinum Games, but it was published by Square Enix.
Bear in mind, however, that if a sequel is on the table, then it will still be a way off. At least, for now, I have the stellar game that was released earlier this year to look forward to.
