Project Spark Xbox One beta release date confirmed for February

Microsoft will launch the Project Spark beta for Xbox One in February, joining the Windows 8 PC beta members.

Team Dakota hosted a Twitch livestream this week that confirmed the Xbox One Project Spark beta will launch in February, but this may slip to March if any development roadblocks arise.

The Project Spark beta launched on Windows 8 PCs at the beginning of December, but Xbox One owners were forced to wait until early 2014 to gain access.

If you received a beta key at the time of the Windows 8 beta release, you’ll still be able to use that code for your Xbox One in February.

All you’ll need to do is log into your Xbox One with the same LIVE ID you used for the PC version, if you’ve already used your beta key on your Windows 8 device.

However, if you’ve lost, sold or otherwise misplaced your Project Spark beta key, Team Dakota will be sending out a second to those who had previously signed up for the beta.

If you’ve already been enjoying the Project Spark beta on your PC, don’t despair. All of your purchased and created content will be accessible in the Xbox One version.

Unfortunately there’s still no word on an Xbox 360 Project Spark beta.

There’s also still time to sign up for the Project Spark beta on the website.

“Project Spark puts the power, joy and freedom of creating worlds at my fingertips. I control how everything behaves with a tap of my finger. Playing is creating,” explains the Project Spark trailer.

According to Microsoft, Project Spark offers “an infinite number of ways to play, build and share.”
