Yves Guillemot confirms that Ubisoft blockbusters rise in price to 80 euros, starting with Skull & Bones

The new generation games came with a surprise: 4K and 60 FPS may not yet be the norm, but companies like 2K Games, Electronic Arts or PlayStation Studios itself decided that the great games for the new desktops would cost about 80 euros in Europe and 70 dollars in North America. Two years later, Ubisoft joins the bandwagon.

Being fair, it cannot be said that they have not said it with enough margin: since 2021 the French company said in different media that they would study adjusting the price of their blockbusters for the future. Now, Yves Guillemot himself puts a more specific date on that step: November 8, 2022. Basically, the release date of Skull & Bones.

The ambitious future of Assassin's Creed through Marc-Alêxis Coté, executive producer and mastermind of the franchise

Through an exclusive interview with Axios, Guillemot has established that the next big releases from Ubisoft will cost the same as the blockbusters from other companies. At least out.

some of the games [de Ubisoft] They will be the same price as the competition. Big AAA games will be priced at $70

By way of illustration, the launch price of the standard editions of games such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or Far Cry 6 has been 69.99 euros in both cases. It could be found for a little less when reserving in specialized stores, but they had two advantages over other annual sagas such as NBA 2K and FIFA

  • was included a free update, so for the same price we had the versions of two desktop generations.
  • His price was about ten euros below of the new generation launches, which made them much more attractive.

Sony’s PS5 games stopped offering a free next-gen upgrade starting with Horizon Forbidden West, offering the ability to pay the difference to get the PS5 copy. In the case of Skull & Bones we are talking about one of the first Ubisoft titles that will not appear on PS4 and Xbox One, but also the first with new generation game price.

And yes, when looking at the price of the standard digital versions of PS5 like the Xbox Series X we will see that the label marks 79.99 euros (or $69.99), and the same thing happens in the Google Stadia store. All in all, the PC version in the Epic Games Store can be booked at a more greedy 59.99 euros.

Let’s hope that the price increase is accompanied by a proportional improvement in the gaming experience. Above all, seeing the more than promising horizon that Ubisoft draws for us.
