TrustedReviews reports that NierR: Automata is very succesfull right now:

NieR Automata manages to hit one million sales worldwide

Total shipments and digital sales of critically acclaimed RPG NieR: Automata have reached 1 million, Square Enix has announced.

Launching for the PS4 and PC earlier last month, the unusual RPG appears to have gone down a treat with gamers across the globe.

These sales figures are almost definitely an improvement over its predecessor, NieR, which managed to sell only 134,000 copies in Japan during its first seven months of release.

In comparison, Automata sold an impressive 198,000 units during its launch week alone in its home country. Positive critical reception alongside word of mouth appear to have helped international territories considerably.

Kirk McKeand scored NieR: Automata 8/10 in his review, praising its satisfying combat, brilliant soundtrack and compelling storyline.

“Despite some minor annoyances, NieR: Automata is brilliant. It strikes the balance between RPG and action game unlike anything else in the genre. It’s a game you kind of have to meet halfway, with a story that gets more complex and interesting the more you prod at it. If you’re willing to commit, though, you’ll be rewarded.”
