This is not it. Microsoft has also made another decision with regard to the games that are free-to-play. They had reached the decision according to which the Xbox Live will be brought in line with the online services on Nintendo and Sony. This will be made possible by causing the requirement of subscription for the free-to-play games to drop.
There are some of the popular titles that are free-to-play like Fortnite. These are the ones that can be played on the consoles of PlayStation as well as in the Nintendo Switch. They do not require any online subscription to do so. However, there has to be a subscription done for the Xbox consoles. Microsoft released a statement with regard to this concern. According to the company is working hard towards changing this system and is most likely to get it done in the months to come.
The company released a statement with regard to the ongoing issue of the Xbox Live. they mentioned that they have understood the importance of connecting to loved ones through games, and considering this fact, the price of the Xbox Live Gold will remain unchanged. They added that their decision caused a failure of expectations who count on connecting to their loved ones every day.
