Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has a release date, and that means it’s up for pre-order on the PlayStation Store. And just like PS5 launch title Demon’s Souls, this is another full price, AAA title from Sony — it’s £69.99 here in the UK, and $69.99 in the US.
We fully expected Sony to hit its newly heightened price point with Rift Apart, but considering the previous game in the series, Ratchet & Clank on PS4, launched at the lower price of £39.99 / $49.99, it’s quite the jump. Although it’s worth noting that the aforementioned predecessor was a remake rather than a completely new release.
Sony recently caught some flak for the fact that Returnal — the upcoming third-person shooter from Housemarque — is another £69.99 / $69.99 product. We even wrote a soapbox on why that’s probably not a great idea. And while we don’t think that Ratchet’s latest will be met with the same scrutiny, we’re sure that some onlookers still feel as though the pricing is out of whack.
