Today Microsoft revealed that it will dissolve its existing Xbox Live Gold Family Pack on August 27, 2013. Accounts linked to a Family Pack will convert into individual accounts "to prepare for new upcoming features on Xbox Live Gold."
Here's what that means for you.
Microsoft confirmed to IGN that each member of the Family Pack will keep the full membership term -- so if you had 10 months left, everyone in the Family Pack gets 10 months on their individual profiles.
In addition, anyone affected by the change here will receive three extra months of Xbox Live Gold. Activity monitoring reports and Microsoft Points allowances are going away, but those are the only Family Pack features you won't have access to as of August 27.
