If you currently don’t have Xbox Game Pass on PC, you may have missed out on its valuable introductory price of $4.99/£3.99. That’s because the monthly subscription based service will see a price increase on September 17 to $9.99/£6.99 as Microsoft confirmed in a tweet today. This means that both the PC version of Xbox Game Pass and the Windows App will be exiting their beta phase.
However, Microsoft also confirmed that the current price will remain for any existing subscribers during the overlapping billing period. Apparently, they will receive “a notification on the 17th with to get more details”. It’s also important to note that this price increase is only for the PC version of Game Pass, which will place it level with the current rates on Xbox consoles.
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
