    Chris Charla, director of [email protected] said that dev kits have been shipped to more than 50 studios and is just the start.

    “We want to make Xbox One a great platform for developers of all scales and sizes for years to come,” he wrote on Xbox Wire. “We’ve been amazed at the response from developers to [email protected], and we really appreciate their patience as we ramp up the program.

    “Best of all, the list above is far from comprehensive. It’s just a first selection of the hugely diverse complement of developers who are working on bringing games to Xbox One via [email protected] beginning early next year. We’re working closely with developers to bring a wide selection of innovative titles to Xbox One and look forward to sharing more soon.”

    Charla also reiterated that Microsoft is still working “behind the scenes” to enable any retail Xbox One to serve as a dev kit as promised at gamescom earlier this year.

    Zeboyd’s RPG Cosmic Star Heroine will be released on Xbox One, the firm confirmed to Eurogamer. The turn-based sci-fi RPG was successfully Kickstarted back in the fall. It will release on the system after the game’s launch on PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4 and Vita in 2014.

    Energy Hook from Happion Labs, will be one of the first games released through the program. The game was successful on Kickstarter back in June and will release on Xbox One and PC in early 2014.

    Vlambeer, which is also on the list above, said it is considering bringing Nuclear Throne to Xbox One, the game’s producer Rami Ismail told Eurogamer.

    “We’re toying around with the devkits now, and so far it’s been a pleasant experience,” he said. “Chris Charla and his team seem to be really trying.”
