Update: It seems that the Square Enix Representative that responded to the inquiry was misinformed. Although the Steam release will come out next year, they are not announcing the exact date as of this time.

During PlayStation Experience 2017, Square Enix revealed the the Platinum Games developed action title NieR: Automata will be release on PlayStation 4 on March 7 in North America and March 10 Europe .

However, as previously announced, the game will also receive a Steam release. The question arose as to whether this Steam release will share the same date as the console version. Square Enix responded that in will, in fact, launch March 7 and March 10 on PC-via Steam along with the console version in North America and Europe, respectively.

For fans on the edge of only getting the version that comes first, this is sure to make them give further thought as to how they want to experience the upcoming action game.

This past weekend, Square Enix also revealed a limited edition sold exclusively on the webstore. Additionally, they released a new trailer confirming the release date.
