In an interview with Edge, ID@Xbox director Chris Charla said Microsoft has heard concerns about the parity policy from developers and would like to talk about it with game creators on an individual basis.
“Obviously we’ve heard the feedback from developers, and we’re looking at all the way the ways we can to lower barriers for developers, but I really can’t comment on publishing policies,” Charla said. “The reality is that developers should get in touch with us and talk.”
Though the controversial parity clause doesn’t require exclusivity for the Xbox One with the indie titles, it does ensure that all developers can only publish games on other platforms –– PlayStation 4, PC, etc. –– at the same time as they do on Microsoft’s machine.
Charla did announce that Xbox One owners will see ID@Xbox games roll out after the New Year, though the titles would likely be release more toward the end of quarter one –– sometime around March –– in 2014.
