Ubisoft, Watch Dogs: Legion

Former Kotaku alumnus, Jason Schrier, took to Twitter to report that Ubisoft has done away with the speculation that the next-gen games this fall would set a new price standard. During the latest earnings call, Ubisoft acknowledged that these games wouldn’t change in price and will remain $59.99.

The future of the pricing standard is unknown as they refused to answer questions tied to games slated for a 2021 release. According to Schrier, they said: “We are concentrating on the Christmas releases. We have decided those games will be launched at $60.”

This news comes after 2K revealed NBA 2K21 would see a $10 price hike between the current and next-gen hardware. At this current state, it’s hard to say if Ubisoft will adopt this $70 model or if they will keep the model we all know.
