NieR: Automata Hits PC Same Day as PlayStation 4 [UPDATE]



The Square Enix representative that confirmed a simultaneous PC release for NieR: Automata was “unfortunately misinformed,” according to a new report from PCGamer. The game is still confirmed for a general 2017 release window.


Despite Square Enix confirming a generic 2017 PC release window for NieR: Automata this morning, the publisher has confirmed a simultaneous PC release.

The game will launch for PC (via PCGamer) on March 7th in North America and on March 10th in Europe and Australia.

In case you missed it, you should read up on the game’s various packages, most especially its swanky limited edition.

    It really irks me that it took someone sending an email to Square for them to actually confirm this rather important detail, because from what I have seen, neither them or Platinum have actually confirmed this info to the media, only about the PS4.

    Don’t blame us if your game sells like shit.

    Very nice. I thought ol’ Sonebones paid for a delay on PC. Glad that isn’t the case.

    Great I will buy the PC verison Day One.
    I wonder are the Sony fanboys still salty?

    Sweeeeet. But, does it get the demo as well? So far, it’s only been confirmed for the PS4, but that was during PSX and we all know how non-inclusive the news can be there.

    I’ll sit on both versions until I know which one performs the best. PC ports lately have been buggy messes with framerate caps.

    I doubt anyone cares, the game itself is shit

    The game came out?

    Most PC games I played lately for me have been far superior to the console versions. But then again the games I have played lately have been Bandai Namco games. But Platinum make great PC ports so I am not worried.

    I wouldn’t worry about Platinum ports as they all seem technically sound so far, even though they don’t look incredible or anything.

    Apart from the mangles Koei Tecmo farts out every now and then, and some brief stints like Final Fantasy XIII coming out with no discernible video options (but then later adopting a more complete options menu, courtesy of Durante), I’d say the age of the shitty Japanese ports is a bit past us at this point. I could be wrong, but I don’t remember the last time I played a big Japanese title that made me cringe at the port quality it had.

    Just wondering. When this was announced for the PC so many Sony fanboys went on suicide watch. I am just wondering did they finally get over it?

    Not a fanboy, not salty at all. The more people play Yokos games the better

    Yeah, i know that its 8-4, thats why i ask if there’s something new about it. Right now, my expectations about the localization for this game are, well, pretty low

    Tell me about Yoko Taro, why does he wear the mask?

    From his Wiki.

    “Due to his dislike of being photographed, he generally wears a mask when giving interviews or presenting games.”

    It would be very embarrassing. For you.

    Why would they be on suicide watch because they’re getting a game? It seems like you’re blinded by fanboyism. Grow up.

    I guess you wasn’t around when it was annouced to be coming to PC. Sony fanboys went crazy and it was really pathetic. But what can you expect from them as the some of the dumbest and delusional people out their. They care more about having exclusives on their plastic god then games that they love selling well and becoming more popular. As long thier enemies don’t get these games they would be happy. It would funny if it wasn’t so pathetic.

    Good as we need less fanboys in this community.

    I never seen any thing like that on this site. The worse I seen here is Vitafags but since the vita is dead they will soon be gone. Sony fanboys are a cancer to any gaming community. Just go to that wasteland known as gematsu to see what I mean.
