Microsoft reveals the first batch of [email protected] developers

Although the Xbox One didn't exactly appear very friendly for indie developers earlier this year, Microsoft has most definitely now changed its tune, and today revealed a raft of developers who are developing games for the new console.

Since the company revealed its [email protected] program in August, a self-publishing platform that aims to make it easier for devs to make games for Xbox One, it says it has been inundated with requests from devs.

In a post on Xbox Wire today, [email protected]'s Chris Charla revealed numerous developers who have signed up to the cause, including Vlambeer, Slightly Mad Studios, Double Fine, Team 17, Drinkbox, Zen Studios, Ninja Bee, Nicalis, and The Men Who Wear Many Hats.

The post also mentions Crytek as a company that is utilizing the [email protected] program, which shows that it isn't just small indie developers who are looking to make use of the program.

All-in-all, Charla says that dev kits have been shipped out to more than 50 game studios all around the world, including the UK, Finland and Japan.

And Charla adds that this first list is just a selection of the developers who are currently working on Xbox One games via [email protected], with the first games due to be released through the platform from early next year.

"We've been blown away by the interest in the [email protected] program," he noted, "and we cant wait until the games start shipping so players can experience the amazing titles that the independent developers mentioned above (and many, many more!) will be bringing to Xbox One."
