Ubisoft Will Continue to Charge $60 for PS5 and Xbox Series X Games this Fall
Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs Legion will cost just as much on PS5 and Xbox Series X as they do on current-gen hardware, Ubisoft has made clear.
One of the biggest points of contention with many right now when it comes to next-gen games has been related to the retail price of these titles headed to PS5 and Xbox Series X. 2K Games made waves a few weeks back when it announced that NBA 2K21 would cost $69.99 on next-gen platforms, compared to the standard fare of $59.99. Fortunately, it now seems as though this won’t become the norm for all publishers.
During its quarterly earnings call today, Ubisoft stated that its own next-gen titles this fall, which includes that of Watch Dogs Legion and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, will not be seeing a price increase. The PS5 and Xbox Series X iterations of these games will still retail for $59.99, much as they do on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. While it remains to be seen if the $10 price jump for next-gen games from the publisher will happen in the future, it doesn’t seem to be something that is going to occur this year.
