PlatinumGames is Teasing... Something

PlatinumGames is Teasing... Something

A teaser four something.

The developer behind NieR and Bayonetta is teasing something new. Earlier today, a brand new teaser website was published by PlatinumGames, which gives rise to many new questions.

The teaser website itself revolves around the number four. The website's address is four.platinumgames.com, and if you visit the website itself, you'll be greeted with the number '4' in the middle of the screen, which spins around periodically.

And… that's it. What this could mean, we have absolutely no idea. PlatinumGames must be on the verge of announcing something, but it's that something where things get a little murkier.

If I put my tinfoil hat on for a second, a sequel to NieR: Automata would technically be the fourth game in that direct series from PlatinumGames. Starting with Drakengard, NieR: Gestalt was developed as a spin-off from one of the many endings of Drakengard, and 2017's NieR: Automata continued in the same universe as Gestalt.

PlatinumGames has made no secret of the fact that it's going to be a significant year for the NieR series. 2020 marks the tenth anniversary for NieR: Gestalt, and a teaser website for the tenth anniversary of the series was set up in December 2019.

PlatinumGames producer Yosuke Saito teased in January 2020's Famitsu magazine that an unannounced title was in development for the NieR series alongside the tenth anniversary of the series. There's no concrete information on what this unannounced title could be, however.

PlatinumGames' most recent release was 2019's Astral Chain. The developer is currently beavering away on both Babylon's Fall, which re-emerged late in 2019 to remind us it existed, and Bayonetta 3. More information about Babylon's Fall is set to arrive this Summer, likely around E3, while there's been basically zero information about Bayonetta 3 since it was announced in 2017.

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
