What you need to know

  • Ubisoft recently posted financial results in which it discussed a number of issues.
  • One of them was the price increase of games.
  • Ubisoft games releasing in Fall 2020 will still cost $60.
  • It's unclear if this will still be the case when next generation-only titles launch in 2021.

Today, Ubisoft posted its latest financial results and discussed a number of issues. One of the major ones to come up was the supposed price increase of games. Recently, 2K Games revealed that the next-generation version of NBA 2K21 would cost $70 instead of the regular $60. Gamers have since been wondering if this was going to be the price of Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 titles going forward.

We know that Ubisoft won't be increasing the price of games that are launching between now and Fall 2020. They're going to stay at $60. However, the company didn't mention what it's going to do in the future. Once next generation-only titles are common, the price may jump to $70. We'll have to see how developers and publishers react in the coming months.

Would you be fine with a $10 jump from $60 to $70? Let us know.

  • By later, do they mean when thry only make next gen games?
  • Yes, they were very vague. It seems like all the games that are up for preorder will stay at $60, but they didn't comment on future titles.
  • I think they can very well afford to keep it at $60 but I guess they'll wait and see what others are doing and if others are doing $70 they may join the greedy publishers and milk the gamers some more.
