Rumor: Better Late Than Never, Self Publishing Coming to 360
According to a newsletter from FarSight Studios, independent developers will be able to self-publish XBLA titles on Xbox 360 later this summer.
Microsoft has just announced that indie developers (like FarSight) can now self-publish on Xbox Live Arcade instead of being required to find publishers for their games.
This news comes just days after Microsoft confirmed that the Xbox One would allow independent developers to self-publish titles. FarSight Studios has directly suffered from the lack of self-publishing, as The Pinball Aracde was removed from XBLA when Crave Entertainment (FarSight’s publisher) filed for bankruptcy in 2012.
Microsoft has yet to confirm this report.
