Aniplex president Atsuhiro Iwakami commented on the announcement:

Fate/Grand Order has done incredibly well in Japan. It brings me a great joy to know that the fans in North America will soon be able to enjoy the game as well. […] The epic story and exciting battle system come together as the ‘greatest Holy Grail War in history.’ I hope we can bring this excitement to as many people as possible.

Fate/Grand Order inspired the Fate/Grand Order: First Order TV special, which aired on New Year’s Eve in 2016.
