Sony Online Entertainment is strongly considering launching a subscription plan that grants customers access to all of its PC games for $14.99 per month.

The studio currently offers access to a single game for $14.99 per month, or access to multiple titles for $19.99 per month as part of the ’SOE All Access Game Pass’.

SOE president John Smedley said on Reddit on Monday: “We are considering (and are likely going to move forward with) a plan that means if you subscribe to one of our games you are a subscriber to all our games (this applies to PC titles only btw).. all for the current $14.99 a month.

A listing recently appeared on the Xbox Games Store for a game titled Alien: Isolation which, according to its description, is an upcoming survival horror shooter by The Creative Assembly, set 15 years after the events of the film Alien.

The listing also reveals that the game features offline single-player and offline co-op modes, as well as an online multiplayer and online co-op mode that supports up to four players.

The Creative Assembly is best known for its work on the Total War series of real-time strategy games.

Two PopCap executives are leaving the company, effective Wednesday. Both CEO Dave Roberts and co-founder Jason Kapalka are outgoing, placing cofounder John Vechey in the top role. Kapalka will remain with the company as a consultant, but leaves Vechey as the lone remaining co-founder.

A lot of change has been afoot at EA in the last few months. Andrew Wilson took over as CEO in September, and various studios have been getting shake-ups since then. Last week, for instance, we heard that Criterion’s co-founders were departing.
