When asked about Sony's response to Xbox's mega-popular Game Pass subscription service, CEO Jim Ryan responded that there is actually something coming but just not today.

Jim Ryan, the CEO of PlayStation has recently talked to Russian media outlet Tass about all things PlayStation. Ryan was asked about the next-gen battle, PlayStation 5, $70 pricing and PlayStation's alternative to Xbox's subscription service Game Pass.

When asked what exactly is Sony's response to Game Pass' library of more than 200 games, Ryan offered quite an interesting answer, confirming that Sony are working on it but won't share any news just yet. 

"There is actually news to come, but just not today," Ryan replied and went on to talk about PlayStation Now, Sony's cloud streaming platform which regularly adds new games to the library.

At the moment, we do not know what exactly to expect from Sony when it comes to Game Pass alternative but one of the options could be to expand the existing PlayStation Plus Collection library. As you may know, Sony revealed that all PlayStation Plus subscribers and PS5 owners will get to enjoy the majority of PlayStation exclusives and also other, third-party games at no additional cost.

We doubt there is a brand new subscription service coming since Sony already have PS Plus but let's wait and see before we jump to any conclusion. It's safe to say that the Japanese tech giant could surprise us just like they did with PS Plus Collection.
