The service, codenamed Spartacus, is Sony's answer to Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass

Sony is announcing a new game subscription for PlayStation consoles in early April. This was reported by Bloomberg.

According to the agency’s journalist Jason Schreyer, Sony will present a new subscription to the games next week. All in all, the announcement will take place in early April. Sources familiar with the company’s plans have declassified the release date of the service.

“The service, codenamed Spartacus, is Sony’s answer to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, a kind of Netflix for video games,” he said. 

According to insiders, the subscription will include a line of popular games in recent years. Sony’s new service will combine PlayStation Now and PlayStation Plus subscriptions.

Schreyer noted that PlayStation consoles have sold better in recent years than Microsoft consoles. However, the competitor has a strong advantage – a Game Pass subscription, which includes dozens of games. The service costs gamers about ten dollars a month. 

“Sony is likely to be at a disadvantage. It is expected that the new service will not present the biggest games on the day of their release,” the expert concluded.
