At Gamescom 2016 in Cologne, Square Enix announcedd that NieR: Automata, that was previously announced only for PS4, will also be released for PC on Steam early next year. Due to this, it’s quite normal to wonder whether Square Enix plans to expand the game to even more platforms like Xbox One and the upcoming Nintendo NX.

DualShockers asked Producer Yosuke Saito to clarify that point, and he explained that right now there are no plans to port the game to Xbox One and NX, but if Nier: Automata is successful worldwide, it could happen. The possibility is not zero.

Saito-san also clarified that the team has been considering a Steam release from the very start of the project. The PC version will be developed by PlatinumGames as well, so fans shouldn’t worry about the quality of the port.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
