Mouse And Keyboard Support Coming To Xbox One

Earlier this year, Microsoft attended GDC 2017 in which they announced its Xbox Live Creators Program, meaning that developers can incorporate Xbox live functionality such as achievements and multiplayer into their already-existing games that are across Windows devices.

With that, to make it easier to port across these games to Xbox, Microsoft announced today at Build 2017 that keyboard and mouse support functionality will come to Xbox One. The news that hardcore gamers have been waiting for.

Microsoft’s senior program manager for games developers Andrew Parsons did say at the conference however, that initially only a handful of mice will be compatible, but much like their Backwards Compatibility Program, the list of devices will continue to grow in time.
