On the day of F1 2021's reveal, new owner EA jacks up regional Steam prices vs last year's game


News of EA’s first F1 game as Codemasters’ new owner was soured after a massive disparity in regional pricing became clear.


Overnight, Codemasters announced F1 2021 , this year’s version of its long-running, official Formula 1 racing game.


For one, this is Codemasters’ first game under EA Sports, having recently finalised a $1.2 billion acquisition deal .


Unfortunately, what would normally be cause for celebration for F1 fans, quickly turned sour as players in a significant number of countries saw how F1 2021 is priced compared to last year’s game.


It’s a similar story for Turkey, Russia, Kazakhstan, Indonesia, India, Brazil, Ukraine, Malaysia, Colombia, Vietnam, Costa Rica and several other places.


“F1 2021’s pricing is consistent with both EA’s and major industry publishers’ approach for each region,” a statement to VG247 reads.
