Xbox has had a long history of fostering indie game development via the ID@Xbox initiative, and it looks to continue in 2021 in a big way. This week, the team at ID@Xbox announced they are partnering at Twitch for a GIANT showcase of independent titles.

More than 100 games will be featured during the event, including some developers announcing completely new titles. New trailers and gameplay for more than 25 games will also be premiered, including new looks at games like Second Extinction, The Ascent, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.

No Xbox event these days is complete without Xbox Game Pass announcements, and we’ll be sure to see plenty here. Twitch Streamers will host the event and chat with developers, and possibly even do giveaways during the showcase.

For all the indie game goodness, mark your calendars for March 26th at 9 am Pacific/12 pm Eastern, and be sure to watch on TwitchGaming or the Xbox Twitch Channel.

What are you looking forward to seeing? Devolver Digital is going to be there, so I can’t wait to see what shenanigans they’re up to.
