NieR: Automata is no longer a PlayStation 4 exclusive. Square Enix announced at Gamescom 2016 that the PlatinumGames project will be coming to Sony’s console and Windows PCs in 2017. It will be distributed via Steam.
Production began on NieR: Automata in 2014, and the game was first announced during E3 2015. It follows the fourth ending of NieR, allowing players to follow the combat androids 2B, 9S, and A1. Their goal is to retake Earth from the machine lifeforms overrunning it.
