Announced at Gamescom earlier this year, ID@Xbox will allow independent developers to self-publish on Xbox One without fees. And in 2014, registered developers will be able to access Unity game development tools free of charge.
Speaking via the Xbox Wire blog, Microsoft's ID@Xbox director Chris Charla said the program is designed to bring developers of all sizes to its platform.
"We've shipped dev kits to more than 50 studios and, as we said at Gamescom, this first wave of developers is just the start," he wrote.
"We want to make Xbox One a great platform for developers of all scales and sizes for years to come. We've been amazed at the response from developers to ID@Xbox, and we really appreciate their patience as we ramp up the programme."
Charla called the initial member list below "far from comprehensive" and said that Xbox One owners should expect the first ID@Xbox titles in "early" 2014.
"It's just a first selection of the hugely diverse complement of developers who are working on bringing games to Xbox One via ID@Xbox beginning early next year," he said.
