It looks like the prices of WB Games’ titles will also rise on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. This is the information that comes from a leading game retailer.
In recent weeks, several publishers and developers have indicated that they are reacting to the increased development costs on the PS5 and Xbox Series X by increasing the price of their games.
Sony Interactive Entertainment recently announced that the in-house first-party productions on the PlayStation 5 will cost $70 USD in the US region, with minor exceptions such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales. According to current reports, WB Games will also follow the same pattern and increase game prices on the new generation of consoles.
The supposedly decisive clue these days is provided by the online range of GameStop Italy. This includes both Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and Gotham Knights for the current consoles and next-generation systems. The implementations for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One can be pre-ordered at a price of €75.
Even if official confirmation from WB Games or Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is still pending, based on the information from GameStop Italy we can probably assume that the company’s game prices will increase for the next generation of consoles.
Most recently, publishers such as Take-Two Interactive justified the higher game prices on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 with the fact that the prices of titles for the consoles remained stable over the past 15 years, while development costs continued to rise.
