Because they can.
I don't see why they have to charge at all.
It's a software patch, for crying out loud. That means the current software isn't extracting all it can from the engine. If it was a safety issue they'd upgrade the software for free. But because it's a performance issue, they want to milk for as long as they can.
I bet it will be free next year.
