As we settle back into the regular workflow after the hullabaloo of the holidays, it feels like an appropriate time to reflect on why we’re here, doing this gaming thing.
The ID@Xbox program was created with a simple ultimate goal: make sure players have access to more wonderful games to Xbox, this console we know and love. Because we admire exciting, creative games, we wanted to make it easier for independent studios to get their games out there. We want to encourage developers to try new things and play with different ideas, and we want to share their results with a broader audience.
Basically, it’s really important to us that we keep bringing you awesome new games! So that’s our new year’s resolution! We promise to keep helping developers bring innovative games to Xbox this year. It might seem like a small thing, but it’s why we’re here and we’re excited to keep on keeping on in 2018.
Want a little more? How about a goal? In 2017, we helped independent developers release more than 250 games on Xbox One. Let’s aim for 300 in 2018!
Happy New Year!
