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! “
Apart from making leaps in sales, NieR: Automata is doing exceedingly well, grabbing an “Award for Excellence” at the Japan Game Awards during TGS 2017 and being nominated for more at the 2017 Golden Joystick Awards.
