YoYo Games announced today a partnership with Microsoft that will expand support for its development engine GameMaker: Studio to all Windows platforms and Xbox One.

GameMaker is a popular engine, used for games including Gunpoint, Risk of Rain, Nuclear Throne, Nidhogg, Hyper Light Drifter, and many others. The new support means developers using GameMaker can create games using a single code base, then publish them across multiple platforms to run natively, making cross-platform development easier.

Support for Windows RT, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 (and future Windows releases) starts today. The GameMaker: Studio export for Xbox One is coming in the fourth quarter this year for licensed Microsoft Xbox developers, including those taking part in ID@Xbox. Developers will need an Xbox One dev kit to use the GameMaker: Studio export for Xbox One.

Sony announced a similar partnership with YoYo Games in March this year.

I heard somewhere that retail Xbox One units could be used as development kits. If that's true then I'm really tempted to get an Xone.

Yeah, that's Microsoft's plan to make every retail X1 as dev kits, but they want the iD program to mature first..
