Microsoft may be about to implement official support for mods on Xbox One. The rumor comes from Windows Central, after talking about an agreement between the Redmond company and Razer to bring mouse and keyboard on the Xbox One console family, claims that Microsoft is working on a program called “Xbox Community Content”. This would be an official system able to guarantee full support for modding, complete with tools for developers and users.
According to the findings, the alleged program would be in beta phase in the Xbox dev-kit since March and should debut by the end of the summer as an infrastructure created to allow development teams to add full content support to their games created by users.
The program would obviously guarantee a series of functions designed specifically to support mods: for example, we are talking about a true catalog for the contents created by users complete with a search, voting and moderation system. Unable to share the mods with friends and followers, to receive notifications on updates and news in the activity feeds.
Obviously, as of now, Microsoft has not released any comments on what was disclosed by Windows Central that claims to be in possession of some confidential documents. However, it is not the first time we talk about the possible arrival of the mods on Xbox Live: in March, Microsoft was looking for a Senior Program Manager with experience in the Modding field to implement on Xbox Live to promote creators mods with access to telemetry on how well their mods are being received and used.
