Over 50 Developers Signed Up to ID@Xbox

Over 50 Developers Signed Up to ID@Xbox

ID@Xbox, Microsoft's independent game development platform, have sent out dev kits to "more than 50 studios," and the number of studios expressing interest is in the thousands.

In a post on the Xbox Newswire, ID@XBox Director Chris Charla said they continue to do what they can to lower the barriers for indie studios to self publish on the Xbox One. 

"Unity will be free to Xbox One developers, we're continuing to hold developer events (ID@London is next week) and we're also working behind the scenes to set up the system that will enable any retail Xbox One to serve as a dev kit."

To give an idea of what to expect from the program, Charla listed some of the studios who have signed up already:

"Bottom line, we’ve been blown away by the interest in the ID@Xbox program," said Charla, "and we can’t wait until the games start shipping so players can experience the amazing titles that the independent developers mentioned above (and many, many more!) will be bringing to Xbox One."

Thats an impressive list. Though they will have a hard time re-establishing themselves as the indie favs after their boo-boos AND the clear effort that sony made to woo the indies over to ps4. Still will make for an interesting battle though the X1 is clearly behind the eightball this early in the gen.

Good move Microsoft. More indie games means more ideas for future franchises and genres.

Love indie games. Fez, Supermeat Boy, Braid, Shadow Complex were some of my favourite games on Xbox 360
