Yearly Subscriptions 

In other news, players with an annual subscription won’t be affected by the price changes until their renewal date. Additionally, the Game Pass for PC won’t be affected.

As it stands, these price increases will take place in the majority of countries. However, for Game Pass console subscribers in Norway, Chile, Denmark, Switzerland, and Saudi Arabia, prices will remain the same.

Price Increase For Hardware

As well as a price increase for the Xbox Game Pass, the cost of the Xbox Series X will also increase as of August 1 in most countries. 

This comes as no surprise however considering Xbox boss Phil Spencer announced Xbox prices would be increasing last October

“We’ve held price on our console, we’ve held price on games and our subscription. I don’t think we’ll be able to do that forever,” he said.

For the UK, the price will change from £449.99 to £479.99, whereas the majority of Europe will see an increase from €499.99 to €549.99.

As of now, the Xbox Series S is unaffected.
