    Huge news today, 4 March 2015, as head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, announced at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) that the ID@Xbox program is coming to Windows 10--PCs, tablets, and phones! This was one of the major goals of the #SaveXboxWP movement and it will mean a lot more mobile Xbox games. We've been pinging Microsoft about it since 13 November 2013, but we haven't heard anything since 7 July 2014 when Chris Charla, director of ID@Xbox favorited one of my #SaveXboxWP tweets calling for the program to be extended to WP/W8, and now that is coming true with Windows 10! Great job, everyone. Thank you for supporting #SaveXboxWP.

    On 13 March 2015, Gameloft releated Dungeon Hunter 5, their fifth straight non-Xbox game on WP since returning to Xbox development a few months ago. Their individual development teams seem to have the ability to choose for themselves whether to implement Xbox Live or not, and it seems many still are choosing to eschew it.

    On 25 March 2015, Jez reported that Game Troopers has seen great success so far with their mission of porting games to Windows Phone with Xbox integration, noting that they have announced several new games coming and are expanding their staff, hiring new developers to continue working on bringing Xbox games to WP. This is a great example of how other developers who have recently eschewed Xbox gaming on Windows Phone likely made a poor decision.

    On 16 April 2015, Microsoft Studios finally released Halo: Spartan Strike, the sequel to Halo: Spartan Assault, on Windows 8/RT and Windows Phone as a universal app with Xbox integration, after a five-month delay. That's the semi-good news. The bad news is that both games have also released now on iOS, meaning that the exclusivity of Halo to Microsoft platforms, after nearly a decade and a half, has now officially ended. This historic blunder is inexcusable and illogical, and Satya Nadella (@satyanadella) and Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) rightfully need to be called out for it. Please take to Twitter and tell them what you think about taking Microsoft's most valuable franchise from exclusive to multi-platform, thereby undermining both Xbox and Windows Phone in one foolish move.

    On 17 April 2014, Jez Corden interviewed ID@Xbox chief, Chris Charla, about the future of Xbox gaming on Windows 10 devices (including phones. Mr. Charla has previously favorite #SaveXboxWP tweets, and his comments in the article above indicate that we were on to something long before it was announced!

    On 23 April 2015, ZeptoLab released their first non-Xbox game on Windows Phone, Cut the Rope 2, the sequel to Xbox WP games, Cut the Rope and Cut the Rope Exp. This is a big disappointment as it marks another third-party publisher who previously supported Xbox WP gaming who has now abandoned it. Be sure to let @ZeptoLab and
    @Cut_The_Rope know you're frustration.

    On 27 April 2015, consistent, but sporadic, supporter of Xbox gaming on WP, Square Enix, released their fifth straight Xbox title, Hitman G0. This is the second Xbox WP game to launch today! Thank @SquareEnix on Twitter via #SaveXboxWP and pick up some of their other Xbox Titles too (Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy 3, Chaos Rings, and Koozac).

    On 27 April 2015, Sirvo LLC finally brought their popular puzzle game, Threes!, to Windows Phone, but, despite being an Xbox One game, it has no such Xbox Live integration on Windows Phone. This is a huge missed opportunity for Microsoft, Windows Phone, and Sirvo LLC. Very disappointing that Microsoft cannot even get developers who have already published on Xbox One to re-publish the same game with Xbox integration on Windows Phone. Let @ThreesGame know you want Xbox integration patched in.

    On 30 April 2015, Gameloft released their sixth-straight non-Xbox game for Windows Phone since returning to Xbox development on Windows Phone. This game, [URL="http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/battle-odyssey/360f22d8-da56-4329-a865-15b5cc42188f"]

    On 30 April 2015, ustwo brought their acclaimed mobile game, Monument Valley, to Windows Phone, unfortunately, without Xbox Live integration. As is the case with King's Candy Crush Saga and Sirvo's Threes, this is another huge missed opportunity by Microsoft to have a famous mobile game from iOS and Android come to Windows Phone more than a year later but without extra, definitive features like Xbox achievements. Be sure to let @ustwogames know that you'd like them to patch in Xbox achievements.

    On 1 May 2015, the popular Frogger-knock off, Crossy Road, originally from Hipster Whale, made its official debut on Windows Phone and Windows 8/RT via Yodo1 Games. Unfortunately, it launched without Xbox integration, making it another huge missed opportunity by Microsoft to compensate for the long delay between games' original launches on other platforms by using Xbox integration to make it the definitive version of the game. Be sure to ping @Yodo1Games and @CrossyRoad on Twitter to ask them to patch in Xbox integration.

    On 14 May 2015, Paul reported that Gameloft will be updating several of their Windows Phone games with Xbox Live integration, which is good news since they have since released six straight non-Xbox games on WP since returning to Xbox WP development.

    On 20 May 2015, John reported that Microsoft will release Age of Empires: Castle Siege on enemy platform iOS, thereby ending it's Windows exclusivity. Even more damning, though, is that they're releasing it with Xbox integration, a myopic move that undermines Windows Phone and the Xbox brand. If I were in charge of Microsoft, someone would've just gotten fired.

    On 20 May 2015, Gameloft released puzzle game Ice Age Avalanche for Windows Phone but without Xbox integration. This is their seventh straight non-Xbox game for Windows Phone since returning to Xbox development on Windows Phone.

    On 20 May 2015, MiniClip released their fourth-straight non-Xbox game for Windows Phone, Beast Quest. Instead, I'd recommend trying out some of their Xbox games instead: Gravity Guy, Fragger, Monster Island, etc.

    On 25 May 2015, suddenly more consistent supporter of Xbox gaming on WP, Square Enix, released an Xbox-enabled endless runner featuring Lara Croft of Tomb Raider fame, Lara Croft: Relic Run. The game is free to download, so be sure to check it out if you liked Temple Run 2.

    On 25 May 2015, bastions of mobile Xbox gaming, Game Troopers, released their fourth Xbox-enabled WP game, Monster Go! This side-scrolling endless runner is free and is also coming to Windows 8.1. It's also a timed exclusive, not yet available on other mobile operating systems.

    Yeah, that Lara Croft game was quite a nice surprise actually :).

    On 24 June 2015, Gameloft updated previously non-Xbox gameDungeon Hunter 5 with Xbox achievements! This nullifies UPDATE 72 above.

    Dampening the good news above, Gameloft today also released fantasy raiding game Siegefall for Windows Phone but without Xbox integration. This is their eighth total non-Xbox game for Windows Phone since returning to Xbox development on Windows Phone; however, the pace at which they have been updating non-Xbox games with Xbox integration is seemingly quickening.
