With ID@Xbox, developers of any size will be able to self-publish their games on the Xbox One. It could be a great feature for the console, as Sony, Nintendo and the PC platform have already turned into good bastions for independent development.
Today, Microsoft revealed a list of 33 developers who are officially a part of ID@Xbox.
Thanks go to Joystiq for arranging the list of developers and games they’re famous for. Here it is.
- Behaviour (WET, Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise)
- Bongfish (Stoked: Big Air Edition)
- Born Ready (Strike Suit Zero)
- Capy (Super Time Force)
- Comcept (Soul Sacrifice, Mighty No. 9)
