It is reported that the price of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold will increase soon
A new Xbox report states that Microsoft plans to get rid of Xbox Live Gold in favor of making Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the $ 15 version of Xbox Game Pass, which is included in Xbox Live Gold, the basic level of Xbox Game Pass and the The only way to subscribe to Xbox Live Gold. What does this mean? Well, it means that the $ 15 version of Xbox Game Pass will become the cheapest level, replacing the current level of $ 10. Meanwhile, access to Xbox Live Gold would increase from $ 5 a month to $ 15 per month.
The report reaches the hand of an expert and journalist of Xbox, Brad Sams, who claims that Microsoft aims to combine the two subscription services in a single service. To this end, SAMS suggests that all this could happen when the costly acquisition of Activision Blizzard is completed by Xbox.
«I heard that Microsoft is considering discovering how to increase the price of these services [Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass] include GOLD so that $ 15 per month is the new base, which means you get Game Pass and also get Xbox Live Gold, and That is the only level, “Sams said through pure Xbox. «I would not be surprised if when Microsoft closes this acquisition of Activision, actually increase the base price of how much it will cost entering your service».
For now, this is the scope of the report, which, of course, should be taken with tweezers. Even if everything here is accurate, it is also subject to change, but it is aligned with the rumors we have heard, which is that Microsoft is not sure what to do with Xbox Live Gold and have been exploring ways to increase the game pass price of Xbox It would make sense that solutions to both problems were a single shared solution.
At the time of publication, Microsoft has not addressed this report and the speculation it has created. For a variety of reasons, we do not anticipate this change, but if it does, we will make sure to update the story accordingly.
