Ubisoft current- and next-gen games will cost the same

Ubisoft confirmed the cost of its current- and next-gen games will be the same this holiday season, though hasn’t ruled out a pricing change in time.

“For the Christmas games, we plan to come with the same price as the previous generation of consoles,” CEO Yves Guillemot said in a recent investors’ call. “That’s what we’re focused on at the moment.”

Titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs Legion will also support free upgrade paths between current- and next-gen, so you’ll only need to buy the one version of the game.

The confirmation was given in the same investors’ call that outlined the publisher’s new 5-point plan to combat sexual harrassment.

Watch Dogs Legion heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Stadia where available on 29 October, and Xbox Series X and PS5 when the next-gen consoles become available. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla follows on Windows PC via Uplay & Epic Games Store, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and Stadia where available from 17 November, console depending.
