Square Enix revealed during the Tokyo Game Show event on Thursday that its NieR: Automata game has sold and shipped a combined number of over 2 million copies worldwide. The number counts both physical shipments and digital sales.

As of May 29, the game had sold over 1.5 million physical and digital copies.

The game shipped for the PlayStation 4 in Japan on February 23, followed by North America on March 7 and Europe on March 10. Square Enix also released the game on PC via Steam on March 17.

The game is a follow-up to the 2010 NieR game, and reunited the director, producer, and composer. Freelance developer Taro Yoko (Drakengard series, NieR) helmed the project as director at Platinum Games. Yosuke Saito (Dragon Quest X, NieR) was credited as producer, and Keiichi Okabe (Drakengard series, NieR, Yuki Yuna Is a Hero) composed the music. Takahisa Taura (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Anarchy Reigns) handled the game design, and Akihiko Yoshida (Bravely Second, Final Fantasy XIV) designed the game's characters. J'Nique Nicole and Emi Evans each sang a version of the game's theme song.
