Xbox Live Creators Program launches

Smaller developers can now publish their games directly to Xbox marketplace

Posted on

Microsoft has announced that the Xbox Live Creators Program kicked off today.

This means that any developer can directly publish their games to Xbox One and Windows 10, with a simplified certification process and no concept approval required. And, the first wave of games from the Creators Program are live right now for everyone on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

On Xbox One, the games can be found in the Creators Collection, a special section of the Xbox One Store which you can find in the Games section. Games published through the Creators Program have access to the full set of social features from Xbox Live, including sign-in and presence, use of your Gamertag, leaderboards, access to your Activity Feed, Game Hubs, Clubs, Party Chat, Game DVR, and broadcasting on Mixer.

As an open program, Creators Program games don’t have access to Achievements, Gamerscore, or internet multiplayer. To access those features, professional developers can go through the ID@Xbox program. While ID@Xbox was designed for professional game developers who wish to use the full set of Xbox Live features through a full certification process, the Creators Program makes publishing a game accessible to anyone.

Microsoft promises that there is more to come, and hopes the new program allows for greater variety on the Xbox marketplace.
