Is a new NieR game coming soon?

May 15, 2024 by No Comments


Despite its immense popularity in certain circles, NieR: Automata has always seemed like a niche, cult-classic type of game. It’s a fever dream of a game with very unique and compelling systems, and that’s what makes its post-apocalyptic world and furious, action-heavy gameplay so enticing. But we want more. So, is there a new NieR game coming soon?

Will we see a new NieR game soon?

Following a recently published report Gematsu, NieR studio veterans recently started working on the upcoming project. They didn’t say exactly what that project was, but it’s been a long time since NieR: Automata launched in 2017. If we’re counting the most recent title in the franchise, NieR Reincarnation, a mobile RPG, is okay.

Talking about his next project, Saito said:

I am doing various things with the idea of ​​creating something that doesn’t exist yet. I can’t fully devote my time to it, so most of it is left to the staff, but it’s getting very interesting. I look forward to the day when we can announce it.

Now, “something new that doesn’t exist yet” refers to an entirely new story that’s completely separate from the NieR series or in its own world. But he continued the interview:

I’ve been talking about wanting to do something with Yoko and Okabe for a while now. I have a little more to say in the not too distant future, so please stay tuned. It might be NieR, it might not be NieR. I can tell you now.

It sounds like it could be NieR, but that’s anyone’s guess at the moment. We’ll have more information for you when it arrives!

Will 2B star in the next NieR game?

Since you’ve been able to play as 2B in the past few NieR games, it’s likely that the iconic female protagonist will return. If she’s not the main character, you can bet she’ll show up at some point in the story.

Of course, nothing has been confirmed for the next NieR game, including story details, so we’ll just have to be patient for now!


We here at Insider Gaming are big fans of NieR and Yosuke Saito in general and look forward to more from the NieR universe. For now, check out what else we’re talking about:
