Microsoft Pledge To Support Indie Developers On Xbox One


While the word is that indie developers won’t be able to self-publish their games on Xbox One, Microsoft haven’t given up on them, says Xbox head Don Mattrick. Speaking with Kotaku, Mattrick says Xbox One will in fact have some sort of a program for indies.


“We’re going to have an independent creator program,” Mattrick said. “We’re going to sponsor it. We’re going to give people tools. We’re going to give more information.”


Mattrick declined to share more information at this point.
