Microsoft is studying the possibility of ending the Xbox Live Gold subscription model and starting to offer free online multiplayer on their devices. The movement has been speculating for some time and is reinforced by the disappearance of the annual service plan.

The need to pay a monthly fee To participate in online modes has long been a contentious point in the relationship with game consoles. Although it is true that even Xbox and PlayStation players have gotten used to it, on PC it is normal not to have to pay a supplement for a game mode included in the purchase of the product.

It gives the impression that the Redmond house is interested in finding a solution to the situation. It’s no secret that the company has been aggressively investing in Xbox Game Pass, and that subscribers to the Live Gold service are seeing the benefits decline at the same rate as the quality of the games that can be downloaded at no additional cost. Quite the opposite of what Xbox Game Pass offers, which allows access to a large library of games, including major releases. But the latter are also required a Gold subscription to be able to play online.

The abolition of the Live Gold subscription is great news, since they will not force you to pay again to enjoy all the options that a title offers. As you can imagine this would mark a break with the past and therefore current subscribers to the service will also be able to choose to migrate to Xbox Game Pass to benefit from an outstanding library of games. Looking back at the market, the free multiplayer can also be a differentiator for anyone in doubt about which next-gen platform to choose.
