Microsoft tells us that "the list above is far from comprehensive," and that this is but the "first selection" of devs who will be bringing games to Xbox One via ID@Xbox. Some of these developers are Xbox vets, with some having worked with Microsoft or having released games via Xbox Live Indie Games during the 360 generation. However, many of these developers are also new to the Xbox ecosystem--suggesting Microsoft will manage a bit more indie support this time around than last generation.

"Thanks to ID@Xbox, Iron Galaxy can bring Divekick to a Microsoft platform for the first time," Iron Galaxy's Dave Lang said in the announcement. "We've been working on Xbox One games for a while now, and because of that you can bet Divekick will take advantage of all the platform's unique capabilities."
