While the PS4 version of NieR Automata is currently scheduled for a March 7th release, there is still no word for the release date of the game’s PC version. And from the looks of it, NieR Automata may be slightly delayed on the PC.
In a recent stream, NieR Automata’s producer, Yosuke Saito, claimed that the Steam version of the game may be slightly delayed. While PlatinumGames is currently working on it, Yosuke Saito claimed that they (PlatinumGames and Square Enix) will have to do something about the piracy that plagues the PC platform.
Furthermore, Yosuke Saito stated that some ‘recent certain games‘ were broken on the PC during their launch period, and that’s something that PlatinumGames is not comfortable with.
Yosuke Saito claimed that it won’t take long to release NieR Automata on Steam, however it’s almost certain at this point that the game won’t be released alongside its PS4 brother.
We do know that Square Enix implements the Denuvo anti-tamper tech in its titles, so it will be interesting to see whether NieR Automata will be powered by Denuvo or not.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
