At the Game Developers Conference in Europe, the team behind GameMaker, YoYo Games, announced that the program would be able to support the Xbox One and reinforced support for other Microsoft platforms (Windows Phone, Windows RT and 8.1).
From the press release:
“This is a great day for GameMaker: Studio developers,” said Sandy Duncan, Chief Executive Officer at YoYo Games. “We’re absolutely thrilled to strengthen our partnership with Microsoft and to give our community the ability to publish to Xbox One for the first time. We’re especially excited that this agreement will bring continued and future support for all Microsoft platforms.”
“We’re thrilled that the Xbox developer community now has the ability to use GameMaker,” said Ryan Lowdermilk, Marketing Manager at Microsoft. “With GameMaker already available for Windows Phone and Windows, it gives developers another great way to create games across multiple Microsoft platforms.”
Game Maker: Studios will be able to export games made within the software in the fourth quarter of 2014 (roughly Winter here in the EU).
