next-gen game prices: Ubisoft promises to keep it at $60

As many gamers are concerned about next-gen game prices on PS5 and Xbox Series X, Ubisoft made it clear that it’s keeping the same price for it games compared to present consoles. This seems like a challenge to “2K Games” which will add $10 to the price of its next titles on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Ubisoft announced those changes and pledged to keep the next-gen game prices $ 60 both on current consoles as well as on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The publisher therefore does not intend to take advantage of the generational leap to increase its flagship titles.

In opposite, “Take-Two Interactive” and  “2K Games” plan to charge $ 10 more for the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the NBA 2K21 game. Hence, next-gen game prices will be around $ 60 on these platforms, a move that some have seen as a warning sign in the gaming industry. In fact, Most Standard Edition video games have been priced at $ 60 or less since the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 era.

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla will cost $ 60 on PS5 and Xbox Series X

Indirectly, Ubisoft thus has announced the price of its most anticipated games in the line-up of the two consoles. Watch Dogs Legion and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla on PS5 and Xbox Series X will cost $ 60. The pre-order page for the Xbox version of both games already hinted that the prices would stay the same. It should be noted that these two games are part of the Xbox Smart Delivery program which allows you to buy a game on Xbox One and migrate for free to the Series X version.

As for Sony, neither its studios nor its publisher partners have yet released a pre-order page for games in the PS5 line-up. What is not yet known is whether Ubisoft plans to increase the price of its games in the future. The publisher has committed to maintaining its prices for this fall / winter, ie for the launch of Next-Gen consoles. A possible rise in prices could occur after the transition period between the two generations, although nothing is certain at this time.
