More NieR Projects in the Works at Square Enix


Square Enix is apparently looking to hire new staff to create more content set in the NieR universe.

A job listing was recently posted on the recruiting page for Square Enix Business Division 6 (the team behind Dragon Quest XI and the Bravely Default series), looking for a scenario staff member for the planning of sub-quest plots, item descriptions, and design instructions.

In addition, the page contains messages from series creator Yoko Taro and producer Yosuke Saito. Both men explicitly hint that the team will be creating new projects based on NieR, with Taro stating, “Thanks to everyone’s support, it appears that we will be carrying out various developments in regard to NieR.”

Saito, meanwhile,  writes,  “What will we do with NieR from here on? This hit was a one-hit wonder, wasn’t it? We’ve hit our peak and there’s no going higher, that must be it. Things like that. But it definitely feels like there are a great many people waiting on the world of NieR. No, I’m sure of it… I’d like to take this opportunity to recruit those who could help Yoko and together weave the world of NieR, so we have now begun “NieR-related product scenario staff recruitment” (Translations via Gematsu).

The listings and comments suggest that whatever this new product is, it will be the first entry in the IP to be developed in-house at Square Enix. The original game was created by the now-defunct Cavia, while this year’s sequel, NieR: Automata, was outsourced to Bayonetta developer PlatinumGames.
