The SDK [Software Development Kit] for the Xbox One has been announced to release today, by Microsoft. The announcement was made at the Games Developer Conference, by Phil Spencer on a panel this afternoon, which focuses on developers for the Xbox One ecosystem, tools available, and the ID@Xbox Program. The SDK will be accessible by select preview testers in the first wave today, however any developer will be able to access the devkit in the coming months. (I would expect May). The SDK heavily promotes cross-platform features, and use of cross-play, cross-buy, and the unified system being implemented across all Windows 10 releases. The introduction of the SDK also came with the announcement of the expansion of ID@Xbox to new platforms, and new features with DirectX 12.
