Earlier this year, Microsoft announced Xbox All Access which was basically a way for gamers to get their hands on an Xbox One, but pay it back through an installment program. Customers who purchase the console through the program would also be given a subscription to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for set price every month.

Basically it made it more affordable for gamers to get an Xbox One as it meant paying less money upfront, but in a tweet by Larry Hryb, it seems that the program will be coming to an end. Microsoft has announced that come 31st of December, 2018, they will be stopping the sales of Xbox All Access.

The good news is that it seems that the program won’t be killed off entirely and that Microsoft is only ending the current version of the program, and that it is expected to return in a revised format in 2019 (when exactly is unclear, but E3 2019 sounds like a good place to announce it). We’re not sure what kind of changes will be made, but Hryb claims that it will be “expanding” in 2019, so we guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Note that you can still take part in Xbox All Access right now as this will go on until the end of the year, so if you find this program appealing in its current form, go ahead and sign up for it, or head on over to Microsoft’s website for the details.
