12-month Xbox Live Gold subscriptions have been quietly withdrawn by Microsoft

Microsoft has reportedly removed the option to purchase 12-month subscriptions of Xbox Live Gold across all territories in which the year-long subscription was sold.

While the single month and three-month subscriptions remain, there is now no longer an option to save by purchasing the 12-month sub, leading to speculation that the service will either be retired or refreshed for its next-gen system, Xbox Series X, which is out later this year.

It’s particularly curious timing given we recently learned Xbox game streaming service xCloud will be folded into Xbox Game Pass this September “at no additional cost to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members”. 100 games will be available for streaming via a smartphone or tablet and more than 50 are currently in xCloud’s preview program, including Halo 5, Destiny 2, Dragon Age Inquisition.
