Boxing Day isn’t what it once was; you’re going to see a lot of repeats from a month earlier. It’s best to view next Wednesday an encore of Black Friday with a spritz or two of new deals.
2017’s Boxing Day went pretty much as expected. If you were patient, you were able to nab some of the best games of the year on some steep discounts.
The Annual Franchises
The long streak of finding the most recent Call of Duty title for 50% off ended in 2017 with Call of Duty: WW2 coming in at $50 across all retailers.
Assassin’s Creed returned in 2017 with Origins. The $39.99 price tag also returned giving the game a 50% discount within 2 month’s time.
Nier: Automata for $30? I’m sure this was a popular pick up last year. It wasn’t surprising to see Destiny 2 and Wolfenstein: The New Colossus receive 50% off discounts. The Destiny franchise have always been historically quick to discount and the same goes with Bethesda published titles.
What Will Boxing Day 2018 Look Like?
- I wouldn’t be surprised to see Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII and/or Assassin Creed: Odyssey chime in with 50% off discounts
- A repeat Black Friday pricing for Electronic Arts and Bethesda’s lineup of games.
