Immortals Of Aveum Dev Says Game Might Have Done Better At Lower Price Point

Ascendant Studios CEO also preferred a January 2024 release date.


Immortals of Aveum didn't light the sales charts on fire last year, and according to Ascendant Studios' CEO, a lower price and different release date could have helped.

In an interview with Remap Radio, Ascendant Studios CEO Bret Robbins said, "Now the game is on sale, and sure enough, we've seen a huge uptick in sales because of the price. The price is interesting, there's an argument to be made that we should've come out at a lower price point."

Now Playing: Immortals of Aveum Video Review

At the moment this interview was recorded, Immortals of Aveum was on sale for half price. Robbins also mentioned that a different release window would've been better for the game. In particular, Robbins preferred a January 2024 release date, but there were financial considerations, such as the studio having enough revenue to survive a few months without funds from game sales coming in.

Due to the game's low sales, Ascendant Studios laid off almost half of its staff back in September 2023. Robbins mentioned the possibility of getting the game onto subscription services like Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Plus, but hasn't confirmed anything yet.

In GameSpot's Immortals of Aveum review, we said, "The first-person shooter action of Immortals of Aveum suffers from a difficult-to-navigate control scheme and lackluster story."
