Nier Automata's developers talk about RPG systems, the Square Enix & Platinum Partnership, and why there's no Xbox One version.
His answer regarding xbox/PC ports is absurdly non-committal - sounds like a workload issue as-opposed to an actual exclusivity arrangement (though I wouldn't be surprised if Sony try to market it as an exclusive)... assuming the game doesn't flop (according to SE/Platinum's standards) then I'd fully expect to see a post-release Xbox version. Here's hoping the original Nier gets the backwards-compatible treatment, as that game is damn-near impossible to find in stores and it doesn't have a digital or a PC version - not to mention it would be nice to be able to play both games on the same machine... Either way, the Neo should be out before Automata, so I won't need to worry about specs with regards to the (apparently gimped) PC version.
