A rumor, many open questions
A confirmation of Microsoft remains still out. However, now the right time would be, after all, Sony moves the heavy guns with his PS-Plus revolution.
Many questions remain open but still open. The Game Pass can be used depending on the subscription model on both the Xbox and the PC. Is the family plan also split in Xbox, PC and both? And can access all five players at the same time on the play library and the functions of the Game Pass or is the simultaneous use on less individuals bound ?
Ultimately, the cost issue remains open, because how much does a group actually save with a family subscription? All these questions will, if Microsoft really wants to implement a family plan, will probably answer in the near future.
