Supergiant Games Corrects Supergiant Mistake on Sale Pricing for Hades

Published

Hades

Supergiant Games’s action role-playing game, Hades, caught some controversy today regarding its price during the Epic Games Store’s Epic Mega Sale.

Hades was on sale for just USD$6.99, but the Supergiant Games Twitter account responded to a inquiry with a statement that the discount was an error. On ResetEra, one of the developers noted that the correct price should be $19.99, with the 25% discount bringing the price down to $14.99.

However, the situation became worse as the developer increased the base price to $24.99 during the middle of the sale, despite saying that if a price increase were to ever happen that it would be announced well in advance:

Supergiant Games has since issued a statement addressing the confusion, saying that Hades is now back to its original retail price of $19.99, with the Epic discount bringing it to $9.99. In that statement, the developer apologized for raising the price when it did without notifying its fanbase in advance.

Consequently, starting on June 14, the game’s price will increase permanently to $24.99, which the company believes is its current value in Early Access as a result of improvements and updates since its launch late last year.

During Epic’s sale, which runs through until mid-June, games are discounted to up to 70% off, and games over $14.99 are receiving an additional $10 off.
