Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass service is raising its prices and shaking up its offerings. Microsoft on Tuesday confirmed a long-expected price increase for its popular gaming subscription service. The changes mark the second time in a little more than a year Xbox Game Pass has had its prices increased.

Xbox Game Pass is getting major changes today per Microsoft, with a sizeable price increase on Ultimate, and changes to the basic console subscription. Microsoft has quietly revealed it will not include day one releases like Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 in the standard Xbox Game Pass tier amid complaints that Game Pass doesn't live up to its USP of good value for day one, first-party exclusives anymore.

Microsoft announces several changes to its Game Pass subscription service that players can expect to see over the coming months. These changes further complicate the way this streaming service operates. Microsoft has announced sweeping changes to the pricing and structure of its Game Pass subscription service. There are price hikes across the board.

In addition, Microsoft is set to announce that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will come to Xbox Game Pass later this month. This move is seen as an effort to appease subscribers who may be disappointed with the recent changes.

Overall, the changes to Xbox Game Pass are significant and have left many subscribers feeling uncertain about the future of the service. While some may be pleased with the addition of new games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, others are unhappy with the price increases and exclusions of popular titles.
