Xbox Game Pass

Game Pass has already seen a number of price increases over the years, but with the full force of Activision Blizzard’s catalog looking primed to hit the service, including Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 later this year, Microsoft is set to ratchet up the service’s prices once again, something that Xbox boss Phil Spencer himself said earlier in the year was bound to happen sooner rather than later.

As reported by Windows Central, Microsoft is set to increase Game Pass prices, while also introducing a new tier of the service for newcomers, as leaks previously claimed. Xbox Game Pass Core is seeing is annual subscription price raised from $59.99 to $74.99, though monthly prices will remain unchanged at $9.99.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate’s price hike will see it going from $16.99 per month to $19.99 per month, while PC Game Pass’ hike will take its monthly subscription price from $9.99 to $11.99. Microsoft says prices are going to increase globally, and will come into effect on July 10 for new members. Meanwhile, for existing subscribers with recurring charges, the new prices will go into effect on September 12.

Meanwhile, the base Xbox Game Pass tier is going to be replaced with Xbox Game Pass Standard, which will have $14.99 per month subscriptions starting this September and won’t include day one releases. Read more on that through here.
