In a letter posted by ID@Xbox Program Manager Chris Carla on Xbox Wire, the publisher revealed that it will grant developers the access to the ability to play games with gamers across Xbox One and Windows 10 using Xbox Live. Chris Carla mentioned that this would extend to “other console and PC networks”, but there are no specifics at this time mentioning any specific platforms.
On of the first games to use this will be Rocket League, enabling anyone who wants to play with their friends who own a copy of Rocket League on Windows 10 to do just that.
Carla also went into a new solution for developers to program right to the Xbox One: MonoGame. This programming framework is being attributed to Tom Spillman and Sickhead Games.
Not fit to just say “it’s here”, Chris Carla went on to say that Axiom Verge will be “one of the first games shipping on Xbox One using MonoGame.” While this is surely exciting to Xbox One owners, it’s also worthy to note that the game will also be heading to Wii U. As of this moment, we have no release window for either version.
