Starfield, Redfall and Forza for $70: Microsoft is also raising prices

Microsoft Week: Surface with a €550 discount and other top offers at Saturn

from Karsten Scholz
After Sony, Ubisoft, Square Enix and Take-Two Interactive, Microsoft now wants to raise the prices of games from its own studios. Titles like Starfield, Redfall or Forza Motorsport, which will appear in the coming year, should cost around 70 US dollars.

Everything is getting more expensive, including our favorite hobby. Various publishers such as Sony, Ubisoft, Square Enix and Take-Two Interactive first announced that they wanted to raise the prices for games from the new console generation around the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X (from 60 to 70 to 80 euros), then even the prices of the still hard-to-get PlayStation 5 were adjusted upwards (by 50 euros to 549.99 euros for the disc version), and we don’t even want to start with the horrendous graphics card prices.

Microsoft is also becoming more expensive

The prices remained stable at the competitor Microsoft. However, Xbox boss Phil Spencer announced as early as October 2022that at some point Microsoft will also have to react to market conditions: “We held the price of our console, we held the price of our games and our subscription. I don’t think we can do this forever.

Opposite IGN a Microsoft manager became more specific (later confirmed by Kotaku): In the coming year, the games from the Microsoft studios should also cost about 70 instead of 60 US dollars (there was no precise information on the new prices for Germany). Starfield, Redfall and Forza Motorsport are among those affected (how would the prices have looked if Starfield and Redfall had been released in 2022 – as planned?).
