Today, we saw some news reports speculating on our future plans for independent development support. Marc Whitten, Chief Product Officer, Xbox, offered this statement:
“Our vision is that every person can be a creator. That every Xbox One can be used for development. That every game and experience can take advantage of all of the features of Xbox One and Xbox Live. This means self-publishing. This means Kinect, the cloud, achievements. This means great discoverability on Xbox Live. We’ll have more details on the program and the timeline at gamescom in August.”
We look forward to sharing many more details with you at gamescom. Stay tuned to Xbox Wire for the latest, accurate information on this program.
