Ubisoft games rise in price, with its AAA titles at $70 • ENTER.CO

As if we did not have to adjust the wallet, now even Ubisoft games go up in price, starting with Skull and Bones.

Inflation is not only affecting the family basket. Now we gamers also have to worry about the increase in gaming. Ubisoft announced, amid the excitement for the next Assassin’s Creed game, that going forward some of its AAA games will increase in price, starting at $70. The adjustment will begin with the release of Skull and Bones in November. In addition, the titles destined for the new generation of consoles (Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5) will be more expensive.

“Some of the games will be priced the same as the competition. The big AAA games will be priced at $70,” he assured in an interview. Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft to Axios. The comment, referring to the competition, seems to refer to Sony’s determination to adjust its prices for these games, as other developers such as EA Games have done as well.

Interestingly, the AAA games tag doesn’t seem to say much about which games will be part of this cost increase. For example, Gullemot claimed that the next Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, will be released for $50.

The most recent trend is aimed at adjusting the production costs of games to inflation and the increase in their production prices. Although the explanation is logical, it doesn’t do much for video game lovers who today also have to deal with the high cost of hardware to play them. On the console side, Sony recently announced an increase in the PlayStation 5. On the PC side, even with the price of GPUs falling, other components are increasing every month.

The only solution for many is to be patient and hope that these titles are much cheaper a year later. The hope, at the same time, is that these adjustments will be reflected in titles that rely much less on micro transactions or content expansions.
