NieR: Automata's been a real success story for everyone involved. The action role-playing game launched just over a year ago on PlayStation 4, and now Square Enix has announced the the release has moved over 2.5 million copies. That includes shipped numbers as well as digital sales. It also takes the PC version into account.

Still, it's a milestone for that game that could have easily ended up being a very niche release. Strong reviews, word of mouth, and recognisable character design all helped sell the title.
