Microsoft is speculated to introduce a new monthly subscription that’ll combine the features of Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. According to Twitter user h0x0d, the leak claims the price of the subscription will be $14.99 USD a month, around $5 USD cheaper than an existing subscription price of the two.

The Verge believes Microsoft will announce the new subscription alongside the rumored disc-less Xbox One S All-Digital edition later this month since the system relies heavily on digital games to function. Many believe it to be a soft prelude to Microsoft’s xCloud game streaming service that’ll run games across PCs, consoles and mobile devices. The company previously offered a loan subscription service that let gamers rent an Xbox One X or S with Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for $34.99 USD a month, but only for a limited time.

Stay tuned as official news around this initiative will surely surface in the very near future.
