As part of the latest CD Projek Raid investor briefing, executive Michal Nowakowski said that the Polish company would not raise prices by $ 10 as others have.
“When it comes to USD, we’ve started our limits at 60 USD and of course we’re going to keep this price for consumers,” he said. “We are not going to convert it to 70 USD at the last minute. So just to confirm – these prices are on the market anyway, you can see them on different sites: 59.99 USD and 69.99 EUR what are we going to go for. Stayed.”
The next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 will be available as a free upgrade for those who have already purchased the game in any game of the current generation. The same holds true for the announcement of the upcoming PS5 / Xbox Series X version in The Cricketer 3: Wild Hunt 2021.
The two highest-profile examples of a $ 10 price increase are NBA 2K21 and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, charging $ 70 USD for their PS5 / Xbox Series X versions. In the case of Call of Duty, $ 70 gives you a cross-gen bundle. For NBA 2K21, the normal price is only $ 70 for the PS5 / Xbox Series X version of the game.
Prior to the announcement of the $ 10 price increase for NBA 2K21, PlayStation boss Sean Laydon talked about how the current AAA game business is inevitable.
“It’s been $ 59.99 ever since I started in this business, but the cost of (making) games has gone up tenfold,” Leyden told GI.biz. “If you don’t have elasticity at the price-point, but you have huge volatility on the cost line, the model becomes more difficult. I think this generation is going to collide those two imperatives.”
