Some PS Plus and PS Now Subscriptions Are Apparently Being Merged, Possibly Hinting at Spartacus Reveal

In December of last year, reports emerged claiming that Sony was working on a Game Pass-competitor subscription service for the PS5 and PS4. Allegedly codenamed “Spartacus”, the multi-tiered service will, according to the reports, entail various benefits across its tiers, including a large library of PS4 games and  a library of legacy games from the PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP, in addition to merging PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now’s offerings.

Recent developments might possibly suggesting that there could be some movement on that front. As reported by IGN Italy, some NeoGAF users have recently reported that their PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now subscriptions seem to have been merged. More specifically, users with active subscriptions for both services are reporting that both are appearing as subscriptions for PS Plus, rather than one active subscription for each. Meanwhile, another user also reports that upon renewing their PlayStation Plus account, they received a PS Now subscription as a gift for the same duration.

It is, of course, entirely feasible that this is a glitch on PlayStation’s end, but recent leaks would suggest otherwise. More recently, for instance, reports claimed that Project Spartacus is “pretty close” to launching. Other leaks, meanwhile, have claimed that a big PlayStation event is scheduled for March (where Hogwarts Legacy will also allegedly re-emerge and a Forspoken delay could be announced)- which, if accurate, might be the place where such a subscription service could get unveiled.

We’ll keep an eye out for more details, so stay tuned for any and all updates.
