One of many breakout hits earlier this 12 months for PS4 and PC was Platinum Video games and Sq. Enix’s Nier: Automata. The philosophically charged action-RPG actually turned heads (for a couple of purpose), and now it appears as if Sq. is not executed with the sequence and should have one thing new in retailer for Nier.
Siliconera is reporting that there is a new employees web page that has been posted by Sq. Enix the place they checklist positions for state of affairs producers who can work on NPC conduct, dialogue, and creating sub-quests and plots. The place very clearly notes that it is for work on the Nier series.
The remainder of the web page goes via the advantages, work location, and the expertise that is required to tackle the place.
Siliconera additional stories that each inventive director Yoko Taro and producer Yosuke Saito supplied a message in regards to the recruitment publish on the Sq. Enix web page, and Taro, in typical trend, makes a joke out of the entire thing with a little bit of self-deprecation. He explains in his message that he is at his restrict and that he cannot do every thing on his personal as a result of being lazy. He additionally assuages followers’ fears in regards to the hiring of the brand new recruit, noting that they’ll simply “speak somewhat bit” about being concerned collectively.
Saito-san reiterates elements of Taro’s message, saying that for the subsequent Nier undertaking the workforce might want to develop somewhat bit to assist out Taro with the writing of quests and missions. He additionally jokes about whether or not or not the final outing of Nier: Automata was a one hit surprise or if folks really crave extra from the world. He concludes that folks really need extra from the Nier world and they also will proceed work on the sport.
What they do not clarify is that if it is a new sport or a brand new DLC growth pack. As we have seen with video games like Closing Fantasy XV, Sq. continues to be supporting that sport with all new content material a whole 12 months after launch. So, is it doable that Platinum and Sq. might be engaged on a model new growth for Nier: Automata? It appears a bit unlikely given the way in which the sport ended and the way the story wrapped itself up good and neat. That is to not point out that there is no method they may enhance on the characterizations of 2B, 9S and A9. At this level it positively appears to make much more sense for it to be a model new sport or spin-off of some kind.
Platinum and Sq. managed to garner lots of constructive reward and lauded suggestions from the group for Nier: Automata, so possibly the studio will proceed to maneuver in that route with the subsequent sport?
There’s actually no telling, on condition that Nier: Automata was fairly completely different from the earlier titles within the sequence, together with Nier: Replicant and the earlier Drakengard video games earlier than it. There’s additionally a ton of lore and doable story avenues to cowl within the sequence. It is somewhat just like the Japanese offspring of Star Wars and Blade Runner.
After all, if the studio is simply now hiring then it signifies that no matter undertaking is being labored on is a protracted methods off from launch.
