ID@Xbox Blog Finds a New Home
Microsoft has announced that the ID@Xbox blog has now moved to a new location, Xbox Wire.
Since its inception in 2014, the ID@Xbox blog has been a great tool for indie developers to get their game noticed. Over the years, it’s been successful in building a strong independent games community on Xbox. The new URL will be: https://news.xbox.com/en-us/idatxbox/
“Developer posts, interviews, and much more, will now be easily accessible and in the same place as all of your other official Xbox news!” wrote Chris Charla, director at ID@Xbox, in a news announcement. “Giving creators and their games the spotlight has always been our main goal of the ID@Xbox blog, and now we’re going to be doing that on a whole new scale!”
Charla also says that they will be republishing “some of our classic content” including the “Getting to Know ID” series and “other cool articles from our back catalog.” The rest of the old site will be archived, with some old articles popping up now and again.
ID@Xbox is basically Microsoft’s answer for independent developers to self-publish their games on Xbox. Any independent game developer can join the program, received a dev kit, and immediately start making games. More importantly, they’ll have access to resources to hopefully make their games a success.
Developers that have signed up for the program include Bloober Team (Layers of Fear), Playdead (Inside), and Warhorse Studios (Kingdom Come: Deliverance).
