Codemasters: It’s naive to think that game prices will remain the same with the arrival of nextgen
Codemasters CEO Frank Sagnier spoke with a GamesIndustry.biz representative during the Investment Summit Online. The main topic was the imminent arrival of new generation consoles.
According to Frank, an increase in game prices is inevitable.
It is naive to believe that the prices for games will remain the same with the arrival of the nextgen, because you need to match the power of the new consoles.
There will be games that don’t need multimillion dollar sales. But in the case of racing, you always want to make the best car models, to achieve 60 frames per second. There is a lot to do and it costs money.
Sagnier highlighted the importance of gaming services and stated that Codemasters is well prepared for the next generation.
At the same time, Dirt 5 from Codemasters will be almost the only new racing game available on nextgen right on the day of the start of sales.
Dirt 5 will release on November 6 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, later on PS5 and Xbox Series X, and on Stadia next year.
