Ubisoft says its “Big AAA” games will now be priced at $70
Ubisoft is raising the price of its core AAA games to $70, effective when Skull and Bones releases in November. According to a report from Axios, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has confirmed that the larger versions of current-gen consoles (Xbox Series X|S and PS5), like other recent AAA releases, will be more expensive.
“Some of the games will be priced the same as the competition. Big AAA games will be $70,” Guillemot told Axios. That’s no surprise, as $70 seems to be pretty much the new norm for major new titles. Versions like Call of Duty: Black Ops sold for $70 at launch, as well as NBA 2K21.
Note that Guillemot pointed out that only certain Ubisoft games, and not all, will have a $70 price tag. Assassin’s Creed Mirage, released in 2023, will only ask you to shell out more than $50.
Ubisoft has been making headlines recently, with not one, but four new Assassin’s Creed games on the roadmap. Project Red and Hexe are two of the biggest Assasin’s Creed games to come. Red is set in Japan and Hexe appears to be set under the Holy Roman Empire. The other two Assassin’s Creed games, Project Jade and an untitled one, are mobile titles. Project Jade is set in China and not much is known about the other mobile game.
Over at Ubisoft Forward, a new Skull and Bones trailer has been released. It’s a game that’s been in development for quite some time, and players become sword pirates during a golden age of piracy. Skull and Bones will be released on November 8 on Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Stadia.
