Xbox Game Pass Friends and Family Plan is now popping up on the Microsoft Store in more countries, suggesting that a full launch could be coming soon.
A couple of months ago, Microsoft officially announced that Xbox Game Pass Friends and Family plan will be rolling out in selected countries, allowing players to subscribe to a new plan which includes Game Pass access for a total of five persons.
Basically, you and up to four friends or family members could enjoy the entire Game Pass library for less than $5 each. So far, Game Pass Friends and Family is only available in Colombia, Chile, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand, South Africa, and Sweden but it seems that Microsoft could soon launch this new plan worldwide.
On the official Microsoft Store for Europe, the Game Pass Friends and Family plan is now available for purchase, even though, Microsoft are yet to officially confirm additional availability in more countries.
This could suggest that the official global launch is imminent and that the announcement is coming soon, too. It certainly would not be the first time that Microsoft's plans leaked via their own store.
Xbox Game Pass Friends and Family is listed on the website with a "Best Deal" tag as Microsoft are trying to push this plan aggressively over Game Pass Ultimate and standard Game Pass plans.
