Yosuke Saito announced that Nier Automata has entered Gold phase, this means that development of the game has officially ended and the publisher is now preparing to print and send copies of the game to retailers ahead of the launch.
In fact, the game was long over. Saito reveals on Twitter, the announcement has now been made because it says that this type of message is fashionable, as recently Guerrilla Games published its Horizon: Zero Dawn.

The dates indicated refer to the version for PlayStation 4, the PC edition is expected (exclusively on Steam) during 2017.
