Aniplex has announced that the fourth episode of NieR:Automata Ver 1.1a has been delayed indefinitely, effectively putting the series on hold. The production committee for the anime have cited the rise in COVID-19 cases in Japan as the main reason for the delay. The anime will continue to air the first three episodes from the 28th of January 2023 until a return date is confirmed.

Synopsis via Square Enix:

NieR:Automata tells the story of androids 2B, 9S and A2 and their battle to reclaim the machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful machines.

Humanity has been driven from the Earth by mechanical beings from another world. In a final effort to take back the planet, the human resistance sends a force of android soldiers to destroy the invaders. Now, a war between machines and androids rages on… A war that could soon unveil a long-forgotten truth of the world.
