Microsoft has announced that it's retiring its introductory price for the Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription service, with the price set to increase to £7.99 / $9.99, bringing it in line with Xbox Game Pass for console.
In a message on Twitter, the company explained that the price will go away on September 17th, but if you're already a member, you'll keep the existing price for another billing cycle.
"We're retiring the introductory price on the 17th, but if you're already a member, you'll pay the same rate through the next billing cycle. look out for a notification on the 17th to get more details"
Microsoft has made it clear that this only applies to Xbox Game Pass for PC - meaning that if you're an Xbox Game Pass for console or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member, you'll continue to pay the same price. If you're an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member, you already get access to PC games in your subscription anyway.
The news follows the announcement yesterday that EA Play will be added to Xbox Game Pass later this year, available for both Ultimate and PC-only customers at no extra charge.
