A Keywords article that’s NOT about an acquisition? What’s going on?

Keywords now a Microsoft-authorized Xbox tester

Growing services empire Keywords has announced that it has been selected as an official Microsoft Authorised Xbox Test Program vendor. 

Catchily acronymed as Microsoft AXTP, this initiative highlights companies that have proven their ability to test games and apps for Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows and Windows Phone. 

Thanks to its acquisition of Babel back in 2014, Keywords is able to provide QA for Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles from multiple locations around the globe.

“Joining Microsoft’s AXTP program officializes the achievements we’ve been making towards our goal of helping all of our partners build awesome games.” said Mathieu Lachance, Functional QA Director, Keywords Studios.

“We’ve had the privilege of working closely with Microsoft for over 12 years now, and on hundreds of products for their platforms for companies across the world. We will continue our efforts so we can add many more fun years to this great partnership." 

Keywords has been growing dramatically over the past two years, acquiring more companies than we have time to link to. The most recent addition to the group was fellow QA firm Synthesis.
