Creators of NieR: Automata Talks Sequel!

During a panel interview at the Southeast Asian gaming convention: GameStart 2017, NieR: Automata‘s  Director ‘Yoko Taro’ and Producer ‘Yosuke Saito’ shared answers to a burning question that is on everyone’s minds. “Will there be a sequel?”

NieR: Automata – Future Prospects

As reported by Duniaku Network,  the creators of NieR: Automata  fully expressed their desires for another NieR  title and stated that a lack of “funds” are holding that them back.

“Actually, we want to make NieR game. Only, we’ll actually do it if we get the funds from Square Enix.”  says Yoko Taro.

Producer ‘Yosuke Saito’ then goes on in a statement that hints at the idea of crowdfunding.

“If there are funds, or the whole world raises funds for us, we will make the next NieR game. Not only that, if you want to give us funds, we’ll make whatever game you want. “

Yosuke Saito later jokingly adds:

“However, you have to be careful if you give us a lot of money. Could be, only part of the money will be used to make the game because the rest will be taken away by Taro-san! “

    Awesome. I like that sound of that. I wonder if it will be a direct squeal to 2B, 9S, and A2’s story, or with new characters after another time jump.

    I would also like a remaster of the first NIER. Preferably both version………….apparently there are two different versions with two takes on the story, one where the MC is a middle aged father, and one where he is the teenage brother.
