Kiosk rental service Redbox is looking into expanding its offering of games to include PlayStation 4, Wii U, and Xbox One, with the newcomer platforms to be added as soon as April 1, according to report from Polygon.
The news came from a series of images on the company’s official website that were then captured by a NeoGAF user. Redbox has since removed the image, but screenshots remain. The images in question showed several Wii U games coming as early as March 25, while multiple PlayStation 4 and Xbox One titles are supposedly due to arrive on April 1. The image specifically listed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Thief, but those were just the titles featured in the image grabbed. It’s only a matter of time until Redbox starts offering next-gen titles for rental, so even if the rumored dates are wrong it’s just a matter of time before that happens.
Pricing wasn’t listed, but Redbox currently charges $2 per day for games. With the price of games remaining the same on retail shelves regardless of which generation of platform it is on, there’s no reason to expect a higher rental price for the next-gen titles.
