Xbox One's indie development and publishing platform ID@Xbox is gaining great support from developers worldwide, Chris Charla, director of ID@Xbox, has claimed.

"We've had thousands of developers express interest in ID@Xbox and we continue to make some big strides to lower the barriers for independent developers to self-publish on Xbox One," wrote Charla in a blog. "Unity will be free to Xbox One developers, we're continuing to hold developer events (ID@London is next week) and we're also working behind the scenes to set up the system that will enable any retail Xbox One to serve as a dev kit.

"We've shipped dev kits to more than 50 studios and, as we said at gamescom, this first wave of developers is just the start. We want to make Xbox One a great platform for developers of all scales and sizes for years to come. We’ve been amazed at the response from developers to ID@Xbox, and we really appreciate their patience as we ramp up the programme."

Charla also published a list of developers who are bringing games to Xbox One via ID@Xbox:

Inis
Comcept
Vlambeer
Double Eleven
Slightly Mad Studios
Born Ready
Crytek
Happion Labs
Definition 6,
Team 17
Panic Button
Double Fine
Drinkbox
Team Colorblind
Signal Studios
Zen Studios
Bongfish
Half-Brick
Ninja Bee
Zeboyd Games
Nicalis
The Men Who Wear Many Hats
Iron Galaxy
Jackbox Games
High Voltage Software
Capy
Behaviour
Hidden Path
Gaijin Games
The Odd Gentlemen
Way Forward
Other Ocean.

Charla says this list is "far from comprehensive" but does show off the diversity in studios whom have signed up to ID@Xbox.

The first games will be released in 2014.

Glad to see Microsoft showing off their indie support (although calling Crytek an indie developer seems a bit clutching at straws, like calling a mainstream manufactured rock band indie I suppose).

This can only be good for the indie scene.

I'm kinda surprised to see Double Fine in there. I thought Schafer was done working with MS. Perhaps the whole Broken Age thing which hasn't gone nearly as well as it must have been planned has made him re-evaluate that?
