on August 12, 2014 7:30 AM

GameMaker Studio has provided tools for game development and creation for years, with numerous big-name indie titles coming out of it such as Hotline Miami and Spelunky, and now those that are looking to craft games for the big screen will be in luck later this year.

Developer YoYo Games has announced that exporting options for Xbox One, and other platforms such as Windows 8, will be arriving later this year to expand on the software’s current export offerings. After previously announcing that exporting to PS4 would also be available at some point in the near future, YoYo Games also revealed that licensed developers for Xbox or the ID@Xbox program would be able to export and upload games to Xbox One in Q4 2014.

Stay tuned for more updates on the upcoming expansions and features in GameMaker Studio – in the meantime, you can check out a new trailer from YoYo Games with the new Xbox One features and more coming to GameMaker Studio:
