Capcom Has Officially Raised Its Prices With The Arrival Of Dragon's Dogma 2

The team at Capcom delivered an official launch date and some more juicy details on Dragon's Dogma 2 yesterday, but one unfortunate bit of news has surfaced since. After considering the bump just a few months ago, the Japanese company has decided to raise its game prices - starting with Dragon's Dogma 2.

The next-gen-only title is now up for pre-order on Xbox, and yep, it's $70. This is the first time Capcom has jumped up from the old standard of $60; a price the company stuck to with March's release of Resident Evil 4 Remake - although that was a cross-gen release on PlayStation at least.

This new $70 price point is definitely the new standard at this point. PlayStation, Xbox, 2K, EA, Activision and many more have adopted the new price point for AAA games since the start of this generation, and it's looking like it's here to stay.

One welcome caveat here is that for Dragon's Dogma 2, Capcom has appropriately converted the price here in the UK. Where most publishers tend to go with $70/£70, Dragon's Dogma 2 is currently listed at £61.99 in the UK. It's not much of a difference, but it's something of a silver lining for UK fans!
