    Due to volume, emails to will be responded to within 10-15 BUSINESS days (M-F, 8AM-5PM PST).


    When is the final payout?
    Since the last day for sales was pushed out to October, we won't make final payouts until February 15, 2018. This is because payments are made 45 days after the end of each calendar quarter. Additional notes: If you reside outside of the US, you may want to email an updated and signed W-8 form. We also suggest that all partners update their banking information.

    How do I update my personal, tax, and banking information?
    You need to sign into your XBLIG account and then go to your My Dashboard to update this information.

    I can't access My Dashboard:
    You must have an active subscription to access this area. If you don't have one, please email and we will provide you a subscription code that you can redeem.

    My Dashboard still shows I haven't been paid:
    Some time ago, the dashboard stopped deducting payments made from the total seen on your Dashboard. Currently what you see is a rolling total of your game sales from the time the dashboard stopped updating to present state. Please always check your bank account for payments made for that quarter by Arvato and deduct that from each quarters "rolling total" as seen on your dashboard. This will give you a better idea of what your next payout amount should be. We do apologize for the inconvenience.

    I am missing payments or haven't been paid:
    Please email with the following:

    1. A scanned copy of your updated and signed W-8 form for those outside of the USA.
    2. Exact title of all games you did not receive payments for
    3. Your XBLIG account (the email you use to sign into your account)
    5. A screenshot of your payment dashboard if available

    How can I release a game onto the Xbox One:
    There is a new program called the Creator's Program that offers limited Xbox Live features for the Xbox One where XBLIG Partners can sign up and release their game through:
    For full Xbox Live features, developers can apply to the ID@Xbox Program:

    Thanks TygerLadi for your continued support through the sundown of Xbox Live Indie Games and XNA.
    Just received my final payment for Q3-Q4 of 2017 for Tunnel Lords. Everything looked in order.
    Guess the final piece of paperwork will be another 1099 for next years Tax Season!
