Taro told the audience that the Square Enix president was present in the crowd, and he encouraged them to give the loudest applause of the night if they wanted a NieR: Automata sequel to happen. As per the Reset Era member, the hall immediately “erupted into claps, cheers and yells”.

Now that both Square Enix president and representative director Yosuke Matsuda and Yoko Taro know that fans are eagerly awaiting a sequel, perhaps it will actually see the light of day in the future.

The Reset Era member also mentioned that, at one point during a story segment, the word “REPENT” was shown repeatedly as part of a dialogue. The final segment of the concert was spelled as “R3PENT”, with the number “3” suggesting that a third entry in the NieR series may already be in the works.
