ID@Xbox titles to launch for Xbox One during launch window, Microsoft says

According to a report today from VG 24/7, the fruits of the Xbox One indie game initiative ID@Xbox could be ready for consumption as soon as the first quarter of 2014, according to the project's boss.

In an interview with Edge, ID@Xbox director Chris Charla said Xbox One players could see indie games developed using ID@Xbox as soon as Q1 of 2014 (January to March), though said it's more likely the titles will launch toward month three of the quarter.

“I think it will be early in the New Year, in the first three months,” Charla said. “I would say closer to the third month."

Charla said that he couldn't put a figure on how many games would be hitting the digital shelf come early 2014, as many of the titles are still in the development stage.

Some of the indie titles, according to Charla, have been in the works for months with some developers working specifically for the Xbox One and others adapting projects to the next-gen console.

"I would say they’re at all stages of development, honestly,” Charla said.

How those indie developers deal with publishing on multiple platforms, however, could be a point of contention regarding the ID@Xbox parity clause.

Charla didn't comment on the policy, though he said that indie developers with concerns should reach out to Microsoft or Xbox.
