Nier Automata was initially released over five years ago, and the title quickly became a huge success. The game offers fast and fluid action gameplay, and fans and critics have also been impressed with the spectacular storytelling.
Nier Automata has recently achieved another milestone, and the game has now shipped and sold over 7 million copies worldwide.

Nier Automata’s 7 million figure includes total worldwide shipments and digital downloads. This is a massive success for a franchise that was considered relatively niche before Nier Automata was released in 2017.
Additionally, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 has also exceeded 1.5 million units. The title sought to update the classic 2010 Nier release for modern audiences, and it looks like the game has been a success.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 serves as a prequel to the popular Nier Automata. The narrative is considered the highlight for both titles, and Nier Automata played a huge role in introducing the franchise to a new group of players.
Furthermore, Nier Automata also brought developer Platinum Games back into the spotlight. Before the game’s release, Platinum Games worked on a few lukewarm titles after massive releases like Bayonetta 2 and Metal Gear Rising Revengeance. However, Nier Automata was an excellent return to form for Platinum Games.
Developer Platinum Games’ recent release, Babylon’s Fall, has also been shut down. While this is disappointing, the developer will be pleased to know that Nier Automata continues to do well.
The recent Nier titles have been successful releases. Both games have accumulated an avid fanbase that continues to enjoy the franchise.
Rumors have also pointed to Sony’s interest in acquiring Square Enix Japan. This could have exciting implications for the Nier franchise if the alleged acquisition comes to fruition.
These impressive sales figures could mean a bright future awaits the franchise, and Square Enix could invest further. While it remains to be seen if the Nier franchise will see a new entry in the future, this recent report certainly appears to be encouraging.
