Nier Veterans Possibly Working on New Project in Series

Nier Automata Boss Fight

As first reported and translated by Gematsu, Yosuke Saito and other Nier veterans are working on a new project that might be a new installment in the classic series.

The information surfaced after Saito spoke with Famitsu about working on two different projects.

Nier series director Yoko Taro and composer Keiichi Okabe will reportedly join one of Saito’s anticipated projects. Saito simply said that “it might be Nier, it might not be Nier,” reportedly with a laugh.

This only leaves fans to speculate, though it does sound promising, especially with the return of other familiar creatives.

Still, rumors of another Nier game have circulated for some time, so it’s unclear if Nier will actually get another game. Since Saito teases a separate idea for “something that does not yet exist” in Gematsu’s same report, that distinction has Nier fans hopeful.

Saito did add that they will have more to say, “in the not-too-distant future.” The announcement would certainly warrant a larger and wider event.

The recent installment in the series, Nier Reincarnation, launched in 2021 to deeply mixed reviews. However, it was a very different experience as a mobile game, and the IP still has plenty of fans.

Nier publisher Square Enix recently confirmed that its games will be multiplatform moving forward, dividing some fans. It will also reportedly lose $140 million on canceled games.
