NieR: Automata is coming to Xbox One, that's according to an anonymous source who revealed this new version of NieR: Automata to the french site Jeuxvideo.com.

Jeuxvideo contacted Square Enix for more details but the japanese publisher didn't confirm or deny this rumour.

JV.Com usually don't post rumors but they're not only the biggest French video games website but also among the top Europeans. Not a "random blog" (with all due respect to all random blogs!).

I saw the article earlier and thought about posting it here but he says he has one (1) "internal source". Take it with a grain of salt, of course, but the author Epyon (really nice guy) seems confident and stand by his article:

[…] I usually don't post about articles based on anonymous sources, stupid rumors and so on. Sometimes people come see me to give me informations.

Sometimes, they ask to not publish it and, sometimes, I am allowed to by said people. Most of them don't end up on the website because impossible to verify.

If, today, there is an article it is because I trust my source and i did all due diligences allowing me to believe them.

Not a port-beg in saying this, but I think it would sell better on Switch port-wise - more of an audience for it.

Spencer's talks must be vaguely paying off then.

LOL someone in the comments is accusing ResetEra of coming up with this rumor.

Either way that would be swell! Plus it would finally give the people who want 2B in SCVI an actual ground to stand on since she would no longer be PS4/PC exclusive.

Can't really see the general Xbox One fanbase buying a game like Nier Automata in any great numbers, certainly not to justify the costs of a port. I certainly welcome more exposure to this fantastic game if it does though!

A relatively low budget and very Japanese game releasing a year late on Xbox One after being available on PS4 and PC? I'll be surprised if it sells more than 100,000 copies.

I wouldn't trust them.
If it was Gamekult, yeah sure, but jv.com ? Nah.
Good for XBX players if I'm wrong, the game is amazing and needs to be played by even more people.

It still baffles me how they still haven't patched the pc version.
I mean if the game bombed it would be a little more understandable (still wouldn't be right) but the game is critically acclaimed and sold well!

I'd double (maybe triple by the time it comes out) dip in a heartbeat. Give me them X enhancements!

I don't know, Maxime or Birdseye can help you.
(I know a bit of french, but i don't follow the french press, from what i know, Jeuxvideo is one of the biggest outlet for videogames in France)
Sorry, I don't really know their track record with rumors or scoops. I'm not getting my hopes up until I hear it from another source

Don't get me wrong, I'd be *really* happy if this is coming to Xbox One.
But for goodness sake, don't put it on the E3 stage.
Xbox needs more *exclusive* games not news of "Yay that game from PS4 and PC is now coming to us too!"

I've played through and platinumed Nier Automata on PS4 so wouldn't play it again personally but getting this out to more people and giving more sales to the team can only be a good thing. The game is amazing. Xbox One only owners - cross your fingers!

I think they would be too...but then again...so what?

Why not? They’ve said in the past if it does well they’d like to bring it to more platforms.

They’d be best served doing some sort of gold edition with extras and doing a run on all the platforms though.

I'd love to see this come to XB1X, but, announcing "we're getting this game over a year later" on a stage is kind of a waste of stage time, IMO.
It also looks bad. One of their big stage announcements would be a year old port of a game that's on ps4 and steam? Ehhhhh, it comes off as low rent. Announce it at e3, even mention on stage in a general "we are getting more Japanese support" section. But don't give it its own section
