Heading for a multi-game pass?

Although nothing has been formalized by Microsoft, a rumor has revealed the next blow the American giant will bring to its competitor across the Pacific. Because yes, there is not only the PlayStation Plus, which is set to receive a makeover because the Xbox Game Pass could also have a new offer that would cater to all households interested in subscribing to Microsoft. As the WindowsCentral website mentioned a few days ago, the Redmond-based company is considering a family formula that would allow multiple members of the same household to benefit from multiple accounts with a single subscription.

With this new strategy in mind Microsoft and Xbox Game Pass are in line with the formulas already offered by other industry leaders such as Netflix, Disney +, Spotify or Big N regarding video games with their Nintendo Switch Online subscription. As a reminder, the big boss of the Xbox industry and current head of Xbox Game Studios, Phil Spencer, had already hinted that such a track would be researched internally without giving further details. Today the rumor becomes clearer because it is confirmed by another journalist close to the files on which Microsoft is working.

An announcement this summer and a launch later this year?

As he mentioned last week, the development of a more compact and efficient chip for the Xbox Series XBrad Sams returned to the charge by adding his little grain of salt around a hot file from Microsoft: the addition of a family formula for its Xbox Game Pass, allowing up to five people from the same household to be added to a single subscription. According to the journalist acting for the media Thurrott, information from WindowsCentral’s Jez Corden on this new formula would be proven and Microsoft would carefully consider rolling out this offer soon.

The journalist cannot say with certainty when this subscription might be launched, as the timing of the announcement could have been verified internally. Today the rumor is gaining weight, and It wouldn’t be surprising if all of this were formalized in good and proper form during the time of E3 – if we can still call it that despite the cancellation of the show – for marketing by the end of 2022. All you have to do is be patient to find out all this, or not!
