Microsoft is expected to launch a new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription offering Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for $14.99 a month total, The Verge reports, as Twitter user @h0x0d broke the news earlier today. The two-in-one subscription will save Xbox owners roughly $5 a month, seeing as the current price for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass is $19.98 combined.
The Verge points out that the new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate package will complement Microsoft’s new disc-less Xbox One S console, which will not have a Blu-ray drive, thus relying on digital downloads and Xbox subscription services. Many assume Microsoft will announce the new two-in-one subscription later this month, in addition to the disc-less Xbox One S All-Digital edition.
This will not be the first time that Microsoft has bundled subscriptions. The Xbox All Access subscription previously offered customers a leased Xbox One X, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for $34.99 a month for a limited time only.
