Starfield Will Be $70 as Microsoft Raises Next-Gen Games Prices
All first-party games created for the Xbox Series X|S will cost $70 USD when they release in 2023, according to a statement from Microsoft. A Microsoft representative confirms to PCGamesN that this price increase, which takes into account the rising scope and expense of creating and maintaining games, will be applied to new releases on both the Xbox and Windows platforms.
As IGN reports, Microsoft has said that pricing for its first-party games will increase from $59.99 to $69.99 in 2023. That’ll apply to the full stable of Microsoft Games Studios, including Bethesda, which has both Starfield and the co-op vampire hunting FPS Redfall due out next year.
We reached out to Microsoft to confirm the price increase would apply to PC as well.
“Yes, our new, full-priced games will be $69.99 across console and PC storefronts,” a spokesperson tells us. “This price reflects the content, scale, and complexity of these titles, regardless of platform.”
The spokesperson pointed out that these games will also be “available on day one” with Game Pass.
The Starfield release date is currently scheduled for the first half of 2023.
