More Developers Sign On for ID@Xbox

By Marc Caccamise,
Back in December, Microsoft offered a first glance at some of the developers who had signed on for the ID@Xbox program. Putting out the call to all interested independent developers, the ID@Xbox program allows developers to self-publish games on the Xbox One. Microsoft provides these developers with development kits, and also supplies aid in the development process, as well as with promoting and marketing the game. Several development kits have already been shipped out to developers, and some of the first ID@Xbox games have now reached the certification stage.

Microsoft has now revealed another batch of developers who have joined the program. The developers listed below, as well as those who have been revealed in the past, are only a portion of the studios taking place in the program, as it has been noted that over 200 developers are currently working on their games. Let's take a look at these developers, as well as some of their previous work that has been released on Microsoft platforms or, in certain cases, what will be their first game on the Xbox One.
