In March, the Microsoft and Xbox teams returned to San Francisco for GDC 2024, the world’s largest game developer conference, to engage and empower developers, publishers, and technology partners across the industry. While there, we reaffirmed our commitment to supporting game developers on any platform, anywhere in the world, at every stage of development, by powering their games and empowering their teams.

In addition to onsite activities like our Lobby Lounge, our GDC efforts included sessions by dozens of speakers from across Xbox, Activision, Blizzard, King and Bethesda. During their talks, they demonstrated everything from in-game innovations to community-building strategies that could help developers of all sizes learn and adapt. Microsoft technology teams, with support from partners, also hosted sessions that spotlighted new tools, software, and services that can help increase developer velocity and grow player engagement.

Today, we’re excited to share videos of each of our sessions and talks from GDC 2024. To go to a specific session, hit one of the links below. If you want check out our whole GDC 2024 playlist in one spot, head over to our YouTube channel.
