Future NieR:Automata Ver1.1a anime episodes postponed again due to COVID-19
THIS CANNOT CONTINUE
Back in January, the fourth episode of the NieR:Automata Ver1.1a anime was delayed due to the staff being hit with COVID-19. While that set production back a few weeks, things recently got back on track. Unfortunately, we’ve learned that the show’s future episodes will once again be delayed due to an outbreak of COVID-19.
The official website for the NieR:Automata Ver1.1a anime has shared a notice revealing that the show’s production schedule being impacted, along with future airings. You can see the note in full below.
Thank you for your continued support of the TV anime “NieR:Automata Ver1.1a”.
Due to the spread of the new coronavirus “COVID-19” and the accompanying delay in the video production schedule, we have decided to postpone the broadcast and distribution of episode 9 and beyond.
Regarding the broadcast and distribution schedule from episode 9 onwards, we will inform you again on the official anime website and official Twitter in the near future.
We sincerely hope that you will be able to wait for a while until the broadcast and distribution of episode 9.
Although it is a measure based on unforeseen circumstances, we are very sorry for the inconvenience and concern for the viewers who are looking forward to the work.
Thank you for your understanding.
