You could make a case for NieR: Automata being one of the biggest success stories of 2017. Don’t get us wrong, the game always looked good, but its predecessor was a big commercial bomb – and it didn’t fare particularly well critically either. But the tale of 2B and her android pals captured the imagination of gamers and reviewers alike – attracting plenty of high praise and some surprisingly sturdy sales numbers.
And now, perhaps unsurprisingly, Square Enix is seeking staff to head up “NieR-related projects”. Open roles include Scenario Staff, who will be responsible for creating side-quests and designing non-playable characters. Sounds like the sort of thing that would end up in an Automata sequel, doesn’t it?
