65 New Developers Join ID@Xbox

Written by on    

Microsoft today announced that 65 new developers have joined ID@Xbox, an indie developer program designed to make developing Xbox games easier.

The announcement cam from the Xbox Wire, where Chris Charla, Director of ID@Xbox had this to say about the new additions:

Honestly when I look at this list, all I can say is “wow.” It’s incredibly humbling to see so many fantastic studios there supporting Xbox One, from XBLIG and XBLA alumni like Ska Studios and Humble Hearts, to new studios like Glass Bottom Games and Heart Machine, and veterans including Robomodo, Zoë Mode and Playdead. We could not be more excited! 

ID@Xbox is a global program and we’re committed to bringing the best from around the world to Xbox One. The first ID@Xbox games are in certification now and, as always, we continue to look for ways to improve the creation process for our ID@Xbox partners with new processes and tools. Stay tuned for updates on both soon!

Personally I think it is great to see so many new developers join the program. Sony has controlled the indie department for the past couple of years so it is good to see Microsoft attempt to make their console more approachable. Let’s hope it works!
