Nier: Automata sold 198,542 copies during its first week of release in Japan, peaking at number one on charts and significantly exceeding sales of Nier in 2010. In April 2017, Nier: Automata was reported to have sold over 500,000 copies in Japan and Asia, including both physical shipments and downloads. According to the NPD Group report for March 2017, the game reached ninth place in overall sales and sixth place in the PS4 chart. In the United Kingdom, the game debuted at number six in the general software chart. By May 2017, sales of the game's physical and download versions on PS4 and PC had reached 1.5 million copies. The majority of sales during that period came from overseas, and it success was seen as surprising compared to the low sales of Nier. By May 2019, Nier: Automata had reached worldwide shipments of four million copies, with an additional 500,000 units selling by March 2020; the latter was attributed to steady sales of the \"Game of the YoRHa\" edition. Nier: Automata greatly exceeded Square Enix's sales expectations, and made them consider Nier as a franchise. PlatinumGames cited the strong sales, in addition to the positive critical reception, as saving the company and renewing interest in their products after several disappointing game releases. As of November 2022, all versions of Nier: Automata have shipped over seven million copies worldwide. 1e1e36bf2d
