According to a report by Windows Central, Microsoft may be planning to introduce family plan on Xbox Game Pass this year. The report also states that the family plan option will provide access to upto five players and work out cheaper than individual accounts. Microsoft already uses family account system for Microsoft 365 family subscriptions and may probably integrate the same.
Xbox Game Pass or PC Game Pass is currently priced at $9.99 per month and doesn’t include online multiplayer capabilities. However, players can upgrade to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate which is priced at $14.99. This helps them to unlock Game Pass for Console, PC, Play access, and online multiplayer options.
The news of a possible family plan could be Microsoft’s answer to updated PlayStation Plus subscriptions by Sony.
