Despite being well reviewed, Nier: Automa­ta has suf­fered from a num­ber of bugs on PC. In the 4 months since release there has been no patch to fix them. Play­ers have under­stand­ably grown upset and have tak­en to var­i­ous plat­forms to voice their crit­i­cisms. 

A Square Enix has since giv­en the fol­low­ing state­ment to Eurogamer when asked about a PC patch for Nier: Automa­ta. 

Square Enix and PlatinumGames are working with PC device manufacturers, like AMD, to address the issues with the Steam version of the game because some of the issues are not what Square Enix and PlatinumGames alone can resolve fundamentally. With AMD’s help, Square Enix and PlatinumGames have successfully resolved some of the issues, and we hope to achieve similar results with other hardware makers. We appreciate your continued patience and support for NieR: Automata.”

While this does not give a time frame, it does con­firm that a patch is being made. In the mean­time fans have tak­en it upon them­selves to fix some of the prob­lems and list cur­rent PC issues. The Nier Sub­red­dit has a list of issues and an unof­fi­cial patch that fix­es some of them.
