A recent job listing posted by Square Enix seems to indicate that the company is getting ready to work on a sequel to Nier.

According to NeoGAF user DKHF (who first noticed and translated the page), the listing appeared on Square Enix’s Business Division recruitment page and was listed for their Business Division 6 (the division of Square Enix that makes Nier). The posting also included a message from Nier series director Yoko Taro as well as the producer for the series Yosuke Saito. The listing describes the job as “Nier scenario staff,” possibly for the next Nier game.

It’s unknown at the moment what exactly the job listing consists of, but it’s important to note that Business Division 6 doesn’t only work on Nier titles, but a wide range of games. The full list of games the division handles is below:
