At this time, Xbox has made a decision to remove the 12 months Xbox Live Gold SKU from the Microsoft online Store.

There is other speculation from VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb that Microsoft might be thinking to at least relax the requirement of Xbox Live Gold for free to play games, especially if leaks and rumours of Halo Infinite multiplayer being free-to-play end up being true. This would be releasing the multiplayer component as a standalone free-to-play experience, possibly separate from premium game servers. If there's a plan to make online play free, and promote Game Pass as the replacement paid option, then things make more sense.

Update: Microsoft and 343 Industries have confirmed that Halo Infinite's multiplayer component will be free to play.

Roll7 had previously said it wanted the game to be the next Rocket League . Private Division is an indie-focused publishing label owned by Take-Two.

Would you be sad to see Xbox Live Gold go away? Xbox Live Gold not only provides access to multiplayer on Xbox consoles, but it also includes four free games every month plus access to weekly "Deals with Gold" for Xbox One and Xbox 360 games. This news wasn't revealed during last week's Xbox Series X gameplay showcase that disappointed many gamers with the state of its graphics, but maybe it's enough to reinvigorate some fans of the FPS.

For the most part, Xbox is a good sport.
