Microsoft has already announced several major releases for the launch of the Xbox One. What they can't confirm, however, is that there will be much for indie fans. In yesterday's interview with Games Industry, Phil Harrison, Microsoft's corporate vice president, stated that indie games won't be a major part of the Xbox One library until early 2014.
I don't think it's realistic to see a developer get the program and build a game and get it into the market on November 22.
On the other hand, Harrison seems very optimistic about some of the console exclusives that are coming to the Xbox One, such as Dead Rising 3 and Titanfall. The system will also be launching with well-known multi-platform titles, such as Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Watch Dogs and Call of Duty: Ghosts. This is another way that Sony and Microsoft's strategies have differed for their upcoming launches. While the Xbox One is focusing mostly on big-name exclusives, the PlayStation 4 has several confirmed indies that are set to hit its marketplace when that console launches on November 15th. Regardless, smaller titles, such as Twisted Pixel's Lococycle, will find a home on Microsoft's hardware.
