If you love indie games, you might be a bit disappointed by Microsoft’s latest statement at Games Industry International. The company’s corporate vice president, Phil Harrison, stated that indie titles for Xbox One are mostly likely to launch in early 2014.
Microsoft has received “hundreds” of applications for its Independent Developers @ Xbox program, but Harrison does not believe it is “realistic to see a developer get the program and build a game and get it into the market on November 22nd”.
Harrison went on to state that he felt it would be more realistic to expect indie games to hit the Xbox market in early 2014. In the meantime, Harrison does not forget to remind everyone about the great launch line-up of games including Dead Rising 3, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, and Call of Duty: Ghosts.
Are there enough launch titles to satisfy your craving or do you need some indie titles to munch down on?
