While celebrating the third anniversary of its [email protected] program this week, Microsoft announced that tons of independently produced Xbox One games will hit Windows 10 over the next several years, with many amazing titles premiering by the end of 2016.

The publisher also announced plans to introduce a Windows 10 version of its Steam Early Access-styled Xbox Game Preview program, allowing PC gamers to preview and purchase in-development games before their official release.

Microsoft launched its [email protected] program in 2013 in a bid to attract independent developers and publishers to its Xbox One console.

As part of the program, enrolled developers get free devkits and access to Unity middleware, along with support and publishing assistance from Microsoft and other affiliated companies.

Recent firmware updates for the Xbox One also made it easier for hobbyists to test their projects on retail units, among other developer-friendly additions.

More than 300 [email protected] games have hit the Xbox One to date, including recent standouts like Playdead s Inside, Psyonix s Rocket League, and Versus Evil s The Banner Saga.
