Nier: Automata is an action game which takes place in the distant future. Invaders from another world attack without warning, unleashing a new type of threat known as "machine lifeforms". In the face of this insurmountable foe, mankind is driven from Earth and takes refuge on the Moon. The Council of Humanity organizes a resistance of android soldiers in an effort to take back the planet. To break the deadlock, the group deploys a new unit of android infantry known as the "YoRHa".
Jeuxvideo.com, the outlet that originally leaked Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for Xbox One, recently said that a source familiar with the game told the team that Nier: Automata was coming to Microsoft's console.
As with any such rumor, take it with a grain of salt until we have confirmation from Square Enix. However, it falls in line with what we've been hearing as well. We've reached out to the publisher for comment and shall update you as soon as we receive a response.
Recently, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer said that Microsoft was working with Japanese publishers to bring more of their titles to the console. Maybe this is related to that endeavor. Nier: Automata launched in 2017 so it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility if the game turned out to be a timed PlayStation 4 console exclusive.
