Capcom Undecided on Price Hikes for Next Generation Games - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 01 September 2020 / 1,725 Views
There seems to be a split in the video game industry on the pricing of games for the next generation consoles, the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, with 2K increasing the price of NBA 2K21 for the two consoles to $69.99.
Take-Two plans to decide on the price of their games for the next generation on a title-to-title basis. Ubisoft at least through the end of 2020 will not increase the prices of their games.
Capcom in conference call with investors said they have not decided yet on the pricing of their games for the next generation and will be closely monitoring the situation.
"We do not have a set policy at this time," said Capcom. "We will consider our approach having analyzed both our strengths and weaknesses while closely monitoring industry trends."
Upcoming games from Capcom includes Resident Evil Village for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 in 2021.
