This changeover is expected to take place on September 1 this year.

The Game Pass Core tier will likely be available at the same price as Live Gold.

This means that users have to pay $9.99 per month or $59.99 for a yearly subscription.

The new subscription will likely allow subscribers to do online multiplayer and also give them access to special Game Pass discounts and deals.

Moreover, the company is expected to convert existing Xbox Live Gold subscribers to Game Pass Core subscribers automatically, the report said.

Meanwhile, the tech giant had announced that it will “end” the ‘Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family’ preview programme on August 15.
