The modification of Xbox Game Pass service, which had been rumored previously, is now confirmed to be happening in the immediate future.

Today, Microsoft has officially declared that starting from July 10th, the pricing for new subscribers for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, Core, and PC Games Pass will be raised on a global scale. For instance, in the United States, the cost for Game Pass Ultimate will escalate from $16.00 to $19.99 for the monthly plan and from $59.99 to $74.99 for the annual subscription. Moreover, the Game Pass PC subscription will endure a monthly cost increase from $9.99 to $11.99. There is a grace period until September 12th for existing subscribers before the price surge takes effect on their accounts, providing them with the opportunity to opt-out without facing the higher fees.

Alongside the price adjustments, Microsoft also announced today that newcomers will no longer have access to Game Pass for consoles starting tomorrow. Instead, a fresh alternative labeled Xbox Game Pass Standard will be introduced in the coming months. This new option will encompass Xbox Live Gold multiplayer services and enable entry to Xbox’s historical game inventory, excluding day-one releases and cloud gaming. Existing subscribers of Game Pass for consoles with auto-renewal enabled will retain their membership benefits.

Except for the Standard package, console gamers will still have the option to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Core, which offers multiplayer access on consoles. The annual cost will climb from $59.99 to $74.99, while the monthly fee remains stable at $9.99. Additional details regarding today’s revelations can be accessed here.
