It is an image of a young boy looking down on the ruins of a city. For some reason, the city reminds me of The Last of Us, that was developed by Naughty Dog for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. i think it is due to colors and design of the city being similar to ND’s masterpiece.
As I mentioned, the game was announced at E3 and was a real surprise for many as the first game wasn’t considered a huge success. Little is known about the project, so we can’t say much but it sure looks great though, and it has a very star studded development team:
The game’s all-star development team consists of producer Yosuke Saito (DRAGON QUEST X/NieR), director YOKO TARO (Drakengard/NieR), character designer Akihiko Yoshida from CyDesignation, Inc. (FINAL FANTASY XIV / BRAVELY DEFAULT), game designer Takahisa Taura from PlatinumGames Inc. (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance), and composer Keiichi Okabe from MONACA, Inc.
Nier still has no release date but we’ll keep you updated on that.
