Microsoft and Xbox have been slowly working their magic in the Southeast Asian region, and with PC Game Pass and Xbox Wireless Controllers officially making their way to our shores, the future is only looking brighter in terms of presence and support.
The team is committed to supporting the region not just in terms of products, but also in terms of supporting the talented developers through the ID@Xbox initiative, empowering teams to express their creative ideas, resulting in various offerings that a wide scope of players can enjoy.
Global Expansion Incubator Lead for Southeast Asia Jun Shen Chia recently spoke about Southeast Asia and how the up-and-coming gaming and development scene in the region has never been more alive, and it is his goal to further foster this growth in the coming months and years.
