It is not the first time that there has been talk of a possible arrival of a family subscription plan for Xbox Game Pass in Europe and the United States, and now rumors are making a comeback after a reference to Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family appeared on the Xbox app in the United States.
To date Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family is available in Colombia and Ireland in a limited Beta version, however, it seems that the service may soon be extended to the United States as well.
A banner of Friends & Family appeared in the Xbox app for U.S. gamers, in all probability therefore the official launch in North America is not too far away, even if it is only a rumor for now.
Rumor has it that Microsoft will be holding a Developer Direct Showcase at the end of January, so who knows, maybe this could be the occasion to make the Xbox Family plan official for the U.S. and perhaps Europe.
