This summer, Microsoft unveiled a novel new subscription program called Xbox All Access. For as low as $21.99 per month, customers could get their own Xbox One along with access to over 100 games. Today, Microsoft reaffirmed that sales of the subscription will end on Dec. 31, and said the promotion will return in a revised format some time in 2019.
“In case you’re wondering,” said Xbox spokesperson Larry Hryb, adding color to the announcement today in a tweet, “the program will be expanding in 2019. Stay tuned for more!”
In an email, a Microsoft representative said the company will be “bringing it to even more gamers” next year.
Xbox All Access arrived on the scene in August, just in time for the beginning of the school year and the busy collegiate shopping season. Plans started at just $21.99 per month, which included an Xbox One S, Xbox Live Gold, and Xbox Game Pass. For $34.99, consumers could upgrade to an Xbox One X. Subscriptions last for 24 months, and you get to keep the hardware when it’s over.
Xbox All Access is still on sale, but only in Microsoft retail stores.
