Indie developers are "incredibly important" to Microsoft and Xbox One, the firm has said.
Discussing whether the publisher has reached out to smaller studios, UK marketing director Harvey Eagle told Digital Spy that it would continue its history of giving developers a platform.
"When I think back a little over our history and I think about Xbox Live Arcade and how that was designed to give independent developers a platform, when I think about Xbox Live Indie Games and hobbyists going and creating their own games, these things are in our DNA, and will absolutely remain unamended for us with regards to the new platform," he said.
"It's a platform built to allow people to develop great content, irrespective of their funding model, irrespective of the size of the team, and irrespective of the difference in which costumers can purchase that content. It's very, very important."
When asked whether Xbox Live Indie Games in particular were returning, Eagle said to "stay tuned" and that there would be "more to share on that in the coming weeks".
