While it's never really been billed as a "big" exclusive, NieR: Automata was only announced for the PlayStation 4. Well, until today. Square Enix has announced that the Platinum Games developed sequel will now also roll out on Steam early next year, so it's more of a "console exclusive" these days. You've got to love that press conference terminology.
This game's been getting a lot of hype, despite its predecessor being poorly received. The original did go on to cultivate a cult following, but we suspect that much of the enthusiasm for this version centres on Platinum Games – the Japanese developer knows its way around the action genre, after all.
To be honest, the PC release makes sense – the publisher clearly knows its target audience for this title. And it's not like the PS4 version will be affected at all.
