Microsoft is planning to introduce a family plan for Xbox Game Pass, according to a report from Windows Central.
According to the report, Microsoft has been planning an Xbox Game Pass Family Plan for a while now, but details surrounding royalties and third-party licenses had slowed things down. Now, however, Windows Central's sources have said that Microsoft is now moving forward with the family plan, which could launch this year.
The report says that the Xbox Game Pass Family Plan would cost more than a regular Game Pass subscription, but would allow up to five players to access Xbox Game Pass, and would be significantly cheaper than paying for five separate Xbox Game Pass subscriptions. This would appear to work in a similar way to Nintendo Switch Online.
This report comes shortly after PlayStation announced its new PlayStation Plus tiered subscription, as a somewhat asymmetrical competitor to Game Pass, although PlayStation doesn't offer a family plan of its own.
