Independent developers have fundamentally changed gaming this generation, with teams from more than 50 countries around the globe shipping more than 1600 games so far on Xbox One via the ID@Xbox program (and thousands more are in development). It’s great to see, and the ID@Xbox team are both humbled by those stats and stoked at the amazing variety of games that have shipped on Xbox and been played by millions of players around the world, as are we at Complete Xbox.
We’re excited to ensure that support continues into the next generation, with backward compatibility meaning all the games you’ve invested in on Xbox One will come with you to Xbox Series X. Independent Developers are already hard at work on games for Xbox Series X, and the team are excited to amp up the support they provide developers as they create next-gen games.
Normally ID@Xbox would be showing off there summer showcase at a game trade show, but sadly this isn’t the case this year, for reasons we all know and understand. It’s such a shame, because conventions like E3 and Gamescom and PAX are places to celebrate upcoming games from the amazing independent developers that work with ID@Xbox.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom, for today the ID@Xbox showcase series is here on Complete Xbox!
We have six new videos featuring updates on more than 30 games that are all coming to Xbox soon. From a skateboarding bird to epic space combat to a racoon detective, there’s some amazing variety here.

Check out the list of games you can learn more about from the devs in the videos below, and we’ll share more ID@Xbox announcements next month!
