Microsoft has made another change in their policy, this time it has to do with Independent Developers. That is right Microsoft has just announced that they will be allowing independent developers to self-publish Xbox One games without requiring a publisher of any kind.
This is also good news because a while back, Microsoft stopped charging developers for releasing patches on Xbox 360.
Xbox corporate vice president Marc Whitten provided the following statement:
“Our vision is that every person can be a creator. That every Xbox One can be used for development. That every game and experience can take advantage of all of the features of Xbox One and Xbox Live. This means self-publishing. This means Kinect, the cloud, achievements. This means great discoverability on Xbox Live. We'll have more details on the program and the timeline at Gamescom in August.”
It’s good to know Microsoft is listing to their customers and finally getting things right!
