Xbox One Live Creators Program Brings Keyboard And Mouse Support
Microsoft announced at GDC 2017 that Xbox Live Creators Program is designed to make it more accessible for developers to release games title for Xbox One. Microsoft also offered up some more details about the kind of Windows features that can be permitted on the Xbox One as a result of the new application. One thing for sure is that it will give support to keyboard and mouse use.
Andrew Parsons, the senior program manager of Microsoft game developers division, took to the stage on day one of the Build Conference 2017 for a session “State of play: Modern game development.” He said that the new Xbox Live Creators Program will give developers the capability to enable all Windows features on the Xbox One console and this includes full keyboard support. Thanks to those “at least two” developers who requested Parsons about the possibility of implementing keyboard support, because of that the program manager made sure to include this knowledge in his presentation.
According to DigitalTrends, these new functions could offer huge benefits to specific sectors of the development community. Studios that specialize in genres and styles of games that tend to rely on keyboard control schemes, such as real-time strategy games, could be really profitable with this. Players who are dreaming for the support for mouse and keyboard while they are playing is now coming true.
On the other hand, there is one major obstruction that could hinder the process of offering keyboard and mouse support on the Xbox One. According to James Yarrow, one of the Microsoft engineers who also took part in the day 1 session of the conference, noted that support for mouse “probably won’t work.” However, this is just a presumption, Microsoft promised they will do their best to make this new functions reliable.
As reported by Games Radar, there's no telling when this update will make it to the Xbox One. One thing for sure is that the groundwork is now being laid. Meaning, anytime soon, both keyboard and mouse support will come to all console owners.
