  • How Xbox supports game developers from all sizes and is fueling growth globally
    • There are currently more than 3,500 titles in more than 100 countries in active development for Xbox.
    • More than 100 titles in development for Xbox consoles via the ID@Xbox program from Southeast Asia, Africa and India.
    • This January was the highest engagement ever on Xbox consoles measured by play time including ID@Xbox program member Pocket Pair, whose Xbox Game Preview title, Palworld, has more than 10,000,000 players on Xbox so far.
  • Xbox releases the Gaming for Everyone Product Inclusion Framework for game developers
    • Today, Xbox shared publicly for the first time The Gaming for Everyone Product Inclusion Framework, a set of actionable resources meant to help game developers – and the wider games industry – weave intentionality and inclusion into the products they make via four key areas or doorways: Approachability, Representation, Globalization and Accessibility.
      • Together, we call these the Inclusive Growth Doorways.
    • To help developers get started – and use the Framework in action – Xbox created a central Resource Hub, accessible via https://aka.ms/ProductInclusion, which includes tangible examples, best practices, case studies and more.
    • Xbox has been using and evolving this framework internally since 2019 and is thrilled to offer it for anyone to use starting today.
