Xbox Live Gold reverts to original pricing after Xbox apology (Update)

Update on January 26: Xbox has apologized on Twitter for “missing the mark” when announcing that the price of Xbox Live Gold was essentially going to double. After quite a bit of community outrage, Xbox claims that the service will remain the same price it has been for the past ten years. The company also promises that free-to-play games will no longer be limited by Xbox Live Gold, meaning titles like Fortnite and Halo Infinite can be played online without needing a subscription.

Xbox Live has been around for a little over 18 years now, and what started as an online service for $49.99 a year has remained relatively consistent since then. In 2010, Microsoft hiked the price of the service by $10, but ever since, it’s remained $59.99 a year for the past decade.
