Yoko Taro, the beloved Creator behind the Near franchise and his many deliveries, has now affirmed that the series has come to an end. It started for the first time in 2010, the original near paved the way for a sequel in 2017 known as near: automatons, which happened to have a commercial success and of widespread criticism. Following the achievement of automata, Taro then returned to the beginning and launched a new Remaster known as amplifying of Near in early 2021. Now, instead of continuing with a completely new delivery, Taro has mocked that he is putting Near in the bed.
In a new video released on social networks, Taro and the fellow producer of him Yoke Saith and the composer Each Okay gave an update on what fans can expect from Near in the future. However, instead of announcing a new game, Taro revealed that The Near series is already finished! That was a bit surprising. However, despite this affirmation, Taro said he would return to the series if he got a lot of money. In response, Saith said jokingly that he would begin to work immediately to accumulate that great sum of money for Taro.
At this time, it seems that Taro is simply doing the fool, which means that Near could return to the future. While this message was presented as one of seriousness, Taro delivered it with a good amount of humor to the fans, which will probably take many to assume that Near will return soon. On the other hand, as was said before, Taro has been working on this franchise since before 2010, which means that he might want to move forward and create something completely different at this time. It remains to be seen what this new project could be, but it is surely something we will follow as time passes.
