Microsoft Reveals Xbox One Self-publishing Plans

Microsoft will not only allow indie developers to self-publish on Xbox One, but it has confirmed that every Xbox One console can be used for development.

Xbox corporate VP, Marc Whitten said:

“Our vision is that every person can be a creator. That every Xbox One can be used for development. That every game and experience can take advantage of all of the features of Xbox One and Xbox LIVE. This means self-publishing. This means Kinect, the cloud, achievements. This means great discoverability on Xbox LIVE. We’ll have more details on the program and the timeline at Gamescom in August.”

However, dev kit functionality will be added at a later date so it will not be available at launch.

Microsoft is already undergoing major sweeping changes to its Xbox One policies, after the always-online and DRM debacle. Today’s announcement comes in response to Sony‘s aggressive push to support indie developers for the upcoming PS4 console.
