Release Nier Automata for Steam in the SEA region

A recent string of events revolving around Steam appears to reflect that Nier Automata will not be available in the Southeast Asia (SEA) region. One key example is the total lack of a converted price point (https://steamdb.info/sub/125305/)
SEA users are not able to access the primary Steam page for Automata. There are multiple accounts of this (https://www.reddit.com/r/pcgaming/comments/5zc76l/nier_automata_steam_japan_pricing_out_other_asia) and this is also easily proven by visiting the aforementioned page on a SEA account. Considering that other regions have already been set a price point, this bizarre form of treatment seems extremely strange and unprofessional. With an utter lack of official commentary on the issue, it becomes clear that SEA may never see a legal version of the PC game appear on its shores.
I, as well as my fellow PC gamers would like confirmation that the game will be released for SEA. We were excited for the day 1 edition with extra content (which includes the Grimoire Weiss skin, amongst other accessories). I myself have been a longtime follower of the Nier series, and we have quite the focused playerbase for previous Yoko Taro and Platinum games. Considering how the game is being handled internationally, it makes no sense to region lock us out of accessibility via the PC release.
This SEA release definitely worthwhile, as the game was made under a fantastic developer, with an excellent mind behind its writing, and will retain players much better than previous Drakengard (and spinoff) games.
