We have also seen that Halo Infinite Multiplayer is going to be free. It was also confirmed. In order to make the multiplayer of this game free, there should not be Xbox Live Gold and multiplayer gaming should be free on Xbox Gaming Consoles.

Before dropping the Xbox Live Gold, the price of a one-month subscription plan was $10, $25 for three months subscription plan, and $60 for a year subscription plan. But now, the one-year subscription plan is removed by Microsoft that is leading to the fact that Microsoft will discontinue Xbox Live Gold. But, one month and three months’ plans are still available.
