Microsoft’s Xbox All Access Service Ends This Year, Will Return in 2019

Posted on December 20, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Games, Xbox One with 6 Comments

Microsoft is ending its Xbox All Access subscription service on December 31st. The company told us in an email that the service will be coming to an end at the end of this year, and it’s expected to make a come back in 2019.

For those unfamiliar, Xbox All Access allowed people in the United States to get the ultimate Xbox experience on a monthly subscription. The subscription came with an Xbox One X or an Xbox One S, Xbox Game Pass, and Xbox Live Gold. At $22 a month, you’d be able to get an Xbox One S, and for $35 a month, you can get the Xbox One X.

Microsoft tells us that the service is going to make a return in 2019, possibly even expanding. “Thanks to our fans and the amazing response we’ve received for Xbox All Access, we’re excited to share that we’ll be expanding the program and bringing it to even more gamers in 2019,” a Microsoft spokesperson said. The company will likely introduce a slightly tweaked subscription in 2019, and maybe even bring it to more countries (*ahem* UK *ahem*), which will be a welcome change for sure.

You can still get Xbox All Access till December 31st — so if you are planning to get yourself an Xbox for Christmas, this might be something you want to take a look at.

    Maybe it will even come to Canada and bring Surface all access with it. Since we have 7 Microsoft Stores spread out across Canada...

    Hopefully they team up with someone other than Dell Financial Services.
