No Xbox One indie titles till 2014

Written by David Stellmack

Not reasonable to expect Indie titles at launch

Microsoft says that they have received “hundreds” applications for the new ID@Xbox program, but we should not expect Indie titles for Xbox One at launch. It just is not realistic to expect developers to get the titles ready for market by November 22nd, according Microsoft’s Phil Harrision. As things stand now, it is expected that it will be early 2014 before Indie titles start showing up on Xbox One.

Microsoft is apparently working to improve both the visibility and discoverability of Indie titles on the Xbox One. The focus is to help developers sell games and as we all know, making money from the titles helps fund the development of additional games. Developers have to make money or they are not going to continue to develop.

While Microsoft isn’t expecting Indie titles till 2014, we suspect that a number of Indie developers will have Xbox One Indie titles ready for sale in early 2014. We would guess that among the first wave of Indie title will be conversions of existing recent releases on other platforms. We don’t expect there to be much of a wait however, as titles show be flowing in early 2014 once Microsoft opens the flood gates.
