Xbox Game Pass Family Plan Could Be In the Works According to Rumors

According to a report from Windows Central, Microsoft could be working on an Xbox Game Pass Family Plan.

One of the key selling points of the Xbox ecosystem is, without a doubt, the possibility of enjoying Game Pass.

This subscription-based service has, in essence, become the Netflix of the gaming industry. Since its launch, the service has steadily increased in the number of titles it harbors and overall game quality.

Now, Game Pass is easily one of the best value offers in the gaming market. Xbox Game Pass constantly adds titles and launches Xbox exclusives on day one at no additional cost.

With all these perks in place, there is one thing Game Pass lacks, and that is a family subscription. Fortunately, rumors suggest that might change soon!

Report Suggests Microsoft Could Launch an Xbox Game Pass Family Plan

A recent report from Windows Central indicates trusted sources confirmed Microsoft is close to launching an Xbox Game Pass Family Plan.

Furthermore, this information states the new Xbox Game Pass Family Plan could launch sometime in 2022.

According to the report, this service would cater who those who would like to share their Game Pass benefits within their household.

Considering titles like Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, and Overwatch are coming to Game Pass, this is a perfect time to launch this sort of plan.

These are all the key details about Xbox Game Pass Family Plan mentioned in the article:

  • Up to 5 people per plan (central account holder plus four additional gamers)
  • Members of the plan should be in the same country, similar to Office 365 subscription
  • No mention of pricing, but it should be cheaper than getting separate accounts
  • No mention of how separation for PC and Console Game Pass would work or if the Family Plan is limited to Game Pass Ultimate
  • Launching sometime in 2022

Windows Central mentions that Microsoft has worked on this family plan for a while, but addressing how royalties would operate in this plan needed to be worked out.

As with all rumors, take this information with a grain of salt. Although considering how Xbox Game Pass works, a family plan makes sense for its business model.

Most streaming platforms offer this sort of membership due to how customers access the content in their libraries. Game Pass is no different and follows a similar model.
