The first week of March will be a busy one. A lot of our attention will be focused on Mobile World Congress in Barcelona as Microsoft will be unveiling new Lumia devices. Although, some 6000 miles away, Microsoft will also be showing off what’s to come in regards to Windows 10 and the Xbox One at the Games Developer Conference in San Francisco, so we’ll be keeping an eye on that too.
During the event, Microsoft will be sharing information on new tools and roadmaps with developers interested in creating games for the Microsoft ecosystem (i.e. Windows 10 devices). Microsoft will also have a number of personnel available to talk to across a series of sessions that will take place throughout the event, so developers will be able to inquire about developing games for Windows 10, further details about what’s to come with DirectX 12, creating unique and great multiplayer experiences with Xbox Live and more.
“With 16 sponsored sessions, a robust booth presence and two lounges, Xbox will showcase the latest and greatest games and announcements on game development for Windows 10 devices and Xbox One.” – Will Tuttle, Xbox Wire, Microsoft
This will certainly be an excellent opportunity to get to experience some of the new features that will be coming to the Xbox One and Windows 10 later this year.
