Xbox May Be introducing a Family Plan For The Game Pass as Hinted by Head of Gaming Phil Spencer

Xbox has done pretty well with Gaming since the launch of the Xbox One. We even saw the launch and the growth of the Game Pass, an ultimate library for so many titles for a subscription. This is something PlayStation has still not really had an answer for. With a monthly fee, users have access to a plethora of titles. They can play these whenever they want and with Game Pass for PCs, that’s even more convenient. Xbox adds more and more titles to the mix. With more partnerships, they add many different brand lineup to it as well.

With the recent addition of EA titles with the integration of EA Play and the Bethesda Games which includes Skyrim and even Doom Eternal. Now, regarding that subscription, to get more people hooked to the service, the company may be looking at announcing a new family plan system. This would be pretty similar to what Netflix and Spotify offer with their services.

According to this article from WCCFTECH, the company is probably working on a model for family pricing for the Game Pass. Of course, this would be tailored to fit a gamer, though. People know that your parents won’t be gaming (at least, if you generalise the concept) so how would this work. Perhaps they would make it for siblings or a group of friends wanting to sign up. Anyway, it would gather the idea in a similar way that for a joint fee, 5 people, for example, would have Game Pass on their registered IDs. We don’t know much about it though a couple of days ago the head of gaming, Phil Spencer did tweet this which sort of confirms that we would see this soon, in 2021.
