NieR: Automata surpassed 5.5 million shipments on its 4th anniversary
Square Enix announced through the NieR series' Japanese Twitter account that NieR: Automata has surpassed 5.5 million copies in physical shipments and digital sales combined worldwide. This announcement was made right on the 4th anniversary day of the game, as it was initially released for PlayStation 4 in Japan and Asia on February 23, 2017.
The last sales update known for Automata prior to this was the monumental 5 million mark revealed on the 2020 Christmas Eve. While it took 3 months for the game to reach the big round number from the quirky 4.85 million mark announcement at Tokyo Game Show in September 2020, it managed to pick up the pace by shipping half a million more copies within just the next two months.
NieR: Automata is now available worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can also read our review of the game, where we gave it a rare 10/10 score.
