Japanese developer PlatinumGames has posted a new website which teases an upcoming project, and fans are already speculating wildly over what it might be.
The new website is purposely minimalist in its presentation, showcasing nothing more than the number ‘4’ right in the centre. Perhaps it’s teasing the fourth installment in a popular or beloved franchise?
Many fans are hoping for the announcement of Yoko Taro’s Drakengard 4, although given how unbelievably niche that series is, it’s highly unlikely. But given the unparalleled success of NieR: Automata anything is possible.
Back in 2019, PlatinumGames’ Atsushi Inaba said the development studio is “in the middle of designing something that has never been done before.”
“I know a lot of people say that, but the game we’re working on truly is unlike anything else.” he continued, refusing to spill any potential beans on what the project can be. The majority of Platinum’s projects have left a lasting impact, so we expect this will be no different.

We imagine more news will emerge in the coming hours or later this week, with the website being the first stepping stone towards a major announcement. At the time of writing PlatinumGames is working on two projects in the form of Bayonetta 3 and Babylon’s Fall, both of which are scheduled to drop in 2020.
I’m desperately hoping this reveal is related to the 10th anniversary of NieR, potentially a teased a remaster of the forgotten 2010 classic. Originally released in 2010 for PS3 and Xbox 360, seeing it reach a whole new audience on modern platforms would be excellent.
“NieR: Automata remains a fantastic action RPG, bringing an alluring world, compelling characters and a real sense of agency together to craft something I really can’t recommend enough. If you’ve yet to play this gem, the Xbox One is currently one of the best places to do so,” reads our 5/5 review of the 2017 sequel.
