Ubisoft CEO calls Skull and Bones a ‘AAAA game’, defends $70 price tag

Skull and Bones

CEO and co-founder of Ubisoft Yves Guillemot has defended the $70 price tag for Skull and Bones, calling it a “AAAA game”.

Guillemot reportedly made this statement during a conference call regarding Ubisoft’s Q3 2024 sales. With a development cost exceeding $120 million and nearly 6 years of delays, fans have high expectations for the piratical MMO.

The $70 price tag for base games has become a point of contention in recent years, with publishers and platform holders trying to convince gamers that it’s necessary for rising development costs.

If you want to see for yourself whether Skull and Bones is truly a “AAAA game” and worth the $70 price, there’s an open beta running until February 11.

Skull and Bones is set to launch on February 16th, 2024 across Windows PC (via the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store), Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and Luna.
