Microsoft does away with Xbox Live Gold 12-month option.
In a bizarre twist of events, Microsoft has decided to pull its 12-month plan for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Confirmation came in the form of a statement acquired by TrueAchievements. According to the statement, the perceived glitch wasn’t one and they did, in fact, pull the yearly subscription fee, leaving fans with only a monthly or an every three-month option.
“At this time, Xbox has decided to remove the 12 months Xbox Live Gold SKU from the Microsoft online Store. Customers can still sign up for a one month or three month Xbox Live Gold subscription online through the Microsoft Store.”
The idea they were going to pull the option isn’t too unfounded. Before the confirmation, though, fans speculated with a bit of hope, that they were going through a worldwide bug at the time, after all, they already suddenly dropped something this month.
This isn’t the first bizarre decision on Microsoft’s part this month. Not even a full week ago, they announced that they halted production of the Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. They were doing this as they “ramp into the future with Xbox Series X.” This left fans with only the Xbox One S as their option if they’re still wanting to get into the current-gen market this late into the game.
