Longtime producer Yosuke Saito says the NieR series will continue as long as auteur creator Yoko Taro draws breath, which is likely to hearten legions of adoring 2B fans.
As reported by Japanese outlet 4gamer, Saito commented during the G-STAR 2023 event in South Korea while giving a presentation about the making of NieR: Automata. However, Saito stressed that circumstances prevented them from releasing another entry anytime soon.
Intriguingly, Saito suggested that he and Taro were working on another non-NieR-related project, which he'd like to discuss sometime in 2024. Taro is confirmed to be working on smartphone game 404 Game Re:set, so this is presumably something as-yet unannounced.
