NieR: Automata Reaches 1.5 Million Copies Sold

Released earlier this year for PlayStation 4 and PC, NieR: Automata has moved more than 1.5 million copies, Square Enix announced today. Back in early April, it had crossed one million.

“Over 1.5 million copies of #NieR:Automata have been shipped & sold digitally worldwide!” They wrote on Twitter. “Thank YOU for your support, we’re a bit overwhelmed!”

As part of their latest financial briefing, Square Enix said NieR: Automata generated sales “significantly above our plan.”

In a recent interview with Kotaku, Director Yoko Taro was asked if there’s something he wished other game developers would stop doing. “It would help me if they would stop creating games. Having less competition would make it easier for me to do business,” he replied.

Asked the same question about players, he said, “I’d like for them to stop saying things like ‘shut up old hag!’ to their moms and others.”

The first DLC pack for NieR: Automata3C3C1D119440927, is $13.99 USD and includes new coliseums and sub-quests.
