Over 60 new ID@Xbox developers join the Xbox One indie army

First games in certification now

Microsoft has added almost 70 developers to the list of successful ID@Xbox applicants, which now spans over 200 developers in total. Stand outs include Playdead, developer of Limbo, Ska Studios, developer of Charlie Murder and The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile, and The Behemoth, creator of Castle Crashers and Battleblock Theater.

"It has been an exciting couple months for ID@Xbox," reads a post by Chris Charla, program director, on the Xbox NewsWire. "We created this program to make it easy for independent developers to bring their innovative ideas to Xbox One, and the response from the community continues to be amazing!"

There are apparently "thousands" of applicants to ID@Xbox, which was unveiled last summer - Crytek, Double Fine, Slightly Mad and Comcept were among the first to be announced. "This list is by no means exhaustive," cautions Charla. "It's just a sample of the many independent developers who will be bringing their games to Xbox One."

The first ID@Xbox games are apparently in certification now - according to an earlier report, they'll release in March. Check out Aoife's round-up of all confirmed ID@Xbox games so far - I wonder which of them will land first?
