Nope, read OM's latest edited post. It's not Automata, but Xenon. At the very least, we know it's not DS' brother. Xenon might be Automata's real name, like how AB and Kaiser has a name.
I don't think Xenon's Automata TBQH. It's highly possible, but Xenon wields a whip when Automata is supposed to wield an energy sword. And the winter update shows no signs of any release of Automata.

January 3: Xenon – the eyes of a sad fate, born to be the perfect battler
Sounds like a Resistance battle-robot to me. Maybe the Demon Avenger releases him from the Black Wings labs. That place is always up to funky shenanigans. Xenon the Automata, like....Freud the Evan I guess?
It seems like he's wielding a whip sword of some sort, like Ivy in the Soul Calibur series. Closest thing to it in real life is the urumi, and it's probably fairly similar to the Glowing Whip item which conveniently counts as a one handed sword. --- http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc157/peekatchu/Other/phainopepla.jpg
