Indie developers cannot self-publish games on Xbox One
Developers must get publishing deal from either Microsoft Game Studios or a third-party partner.
Independent developers who wish to publish their games on the Xbox One will not be allowed to do so on their own, according to a Shacknews report.
Developers will need to obtain a publishing deal from either Microsoft Game Studios or a third-party partner such as EA. Games published on Xbox Live Indie Games will not be affected by the new policy.
General manager of Redmond Game Studios and Platforms, Matt Booty, said that Microsoft intends to stay the course with the way it operates currently. "As of right now, yes. We intend to continue to court developers in the ways that we have," he said.
