NieR: Automata Has Shipped More Than 2.5 Million Copies
NieR: Automata Worldwide shipments and digital sales have now exceeded the 2.5 million mark.
This is the latest milestone from Platinum Games’ critically acclaimed action RPG. In May, Square Enix announced shipments and digital sales of Nier: Automata eclipsed 1.5 million units worldwide.
News of the sales milestone came from the Japanese publisher on Twitter via the following tweet:

Notably, the last sales figure we heard from Square Enix was back in September, when it revealed the game had surpassed 2 million shipments. What this means, courtesy of a little math, is that in another six months the game managed to ship an additional 500,000 copies, which is pretty impressive when you factor its age in the market, and its lack of multiplayer functions that enhance its shelf life.
Square has also announced that the NieR: Automata/NIER: Gestalt & Replicant original soundtrack vinyl box set will be available to preorder soon and will be released in December. The box set features four vinyl LPs, with a variety of tracks selected by series composer Keiichi Okabe, and also sports exclusive illustrations from Tokyo Ghoul illustrator Sui Ishida.
NieR: Automata is available on PlayStation 4 and PC. In celebration of its one year anniversary, the game can currently be had digitally at a discounted $29.99 USD on both the PlayStation Store and Steam. The former promotion runs until March 20th, while the latter will end tomorrow, on the 14th.
