One of the most exciting prospects of the Xbox One is the ID@Xbox program, which allows both independent and AAA developers alike to self-publish on Microsoft’s console. Chris Charla, director of the program, has taken to the Xbox Wire to share some familiar names that have already received dev kits and have begun working on the first round of self-published Xbox One games. Crytek, the team behind launch title Ryse: Son of Rome and the Crysis series, is easily the largest developer on the list, but several indie darlings have made their way into the first batch as well — Vlambeer, Double Fine, Iron Galaxy, Capy and Gaijin Games are just a few of the developers currently working on titles for ID@Xbox. According to Charla, “this is just a sampling of the many developers who are part of the program.” ID@Xbox is currently slated to kick off early next year.
