Who’d a thunk a spinoff of the Drakenguard series would be so popular?! Square Enix announced back in March that NieR: Automata had shipped a combined total of 2.5 million copies combined, now here we are a few months later as Square Enix announced that number is at over 3 million copies. Wow.
PlatinumGames went on record saying that if not for the success of N:A, the company would have gone bankrupt after the cancellation of Scalebound. For the glory of mankind indeed, Brah!
With rumors of a Xbox One port being revealed at E3 2018, we might be talking about a possible 4 or 5 million copies shipped this time next year!
