This morning, we announced that we are partnering with StudioMDHR to investigate bringing Xbox Live features beyond Xbox and PC to Nintendo Switch. Yes, this means that fans will now have the opportunity to experience StudioMDHR’s award-winning debut game, “Cuphead” on Nintendo Switch with Xbox Live. We’ll be working with StudioMDHR to implement Xbox Live features into “Cuphead” on the Nintendo Switch in the coming months. Given the early stage of our work with StudioMDHR, the Xbox Live features will appear in a post-launch update to “Cuphead” on Nintendo Switch.
Working with developers to get their games to their players remains a key goal for the [email protected] program, and helping StudioMDHR bring “Cuphead” and Xbox Live onto Switch is the latest example of bringing Xbox innovations such as Live and Xbox Game Pass over to our development partners in the program.
In addition to this news, we also discussed how acclaimed creators like Night School Studios, Blue Manchu Games and Zen Studios will launch “Afterparty,” “Void Bastards” and “Operencia: The Stolen Sun” day-and-date into Xbox Game Pass. We’re also excited to see games like “The Artful Escape,” “Sable” and “Tunic” from our friends at Beethoven & Dinosaur, Shedworks and Dicey respectively continue their development path through the program. The [email protected] program continues to be healthy by releasing over 1,000 titles in the program, sending developer kits to nearly 500 studios to help over 1,600 games in active development and generating more than $1.2 billion in revenue since the program’s inception.
