Blake Jorgensen, EA’s CFO, has revealed the publishing powerhouse is not ready to address the possibility of increasing its prices for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S software.
PS5 And Xbox Series X Game Prices – EA’s Not Saying Anything Yet
Speaking during the company’s latest earnings call, Jorgensen was asked if titles that fully utilise PS5 and Xbox Series X’s hardware capability would receive a price increase, to which he made it clear EA was not in a position to discuss things right now.
“I don’t really want to weigh in on that yet,” he responded.
We’ve always said games are getting more expensive [to develop]. The experience is getting deeper. The time that people are playing games is getting longer. One might argue that that might require a higher price point over time, but we’ll address that as we get closer to more games coming into the next-gen console transition.
There’s been a lot of chatter about the price of next-generation games the past few months, and we know that the likes of Demon’s Souls remake and Godfall are going to cost £69.99 – £9.99 more than the standard price of games.
In related news, EA also revealed during the earnings call that Battlefield 6 and the new Need for Speed game will launch in FY 2022.
