Xbox Game Pass will cost $14.99 per month, but Microsoft is not yet stating whether it will offer subscriptions in other time-frames (three or six months, perhaps, or one year), while it does do so for the separate Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions. Today, a one-year subscription to Xbox Live Gold will set you back $59.99, while one year of Xbox Game Pass costs $119.99. So one year of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, billed monthly, amounts to about $180, the same price as the two subscriptions combined.
