Just two days after Sony announced its Game Pass equivalent for the PlayStation, Microsoft is now looking to hit back with a new offering for the Xbox subscription plan.

According to new reports, the gaming giant is now looking to launch a family plan for Xbox Game Pass that’ll allow up to five different players to access the same account. The move marks a big departure from its current format, which only allows one user per account. Although you’re able to add a second Xbox console to the subscription plan, the primary account holder still needs to be signed in for the second player to access those games. A family plan would make things much more convenient for those who might not necessarily be online at the same time.

So far, Microsoft hasn’t confirmed anything, and in a response to Engadget‘s inquiry, it said: “We are always looking for ways to improve the Game Pass experience and add more value for members, which includes regularly testing and refining features based on community feedback. However, we have nothing to announce at this time.”

For those interested, stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in gaming, E3 2022 has officially been canceled.
