As mentioned in our post earlier today, there’s no more mention anywhere in official Square Enix communication about the 2016 release window that was announced at E3 2015 for NieR: Automata.
The mystery might be solved at E3, as mentioned by Producer Yosuke Saito during an interview on Famitsu.
Saito-san explained that he expects to show a new trailer at the trade show in Los Angeles, and to announce an approximate release window.
E3 2016 will begin on June 14th, so we don’t have too long to wait. It’ll be interesting to see if NieR: Automata has joined the handful of high profile games that have been shifted to 2017.
