During today’s Inside Xbox livestream, Phil Spencer announced that mouse and keyboard support is coming to Xbox One.
It will be on Xbox Preview in October, and will be initially tested on Warframe. The idea behind mouse and keyboard support will be as a tool for developers, so they can choose how they want the control style integrated, if they want it integrated at all.
“If you’re a dominant FPS player right now on controller and you’re worried that all the sudden you’re gonna get swamped because a bunch of mouse and keyboard players are gonna get flooded into your game, that’s not what we’re doing,” said Spencer. “We’re putting choice into the hands of the developers about the games that they want to bring.”
