The Pinball Arcade developer, FarSight Studios, has said Microsoft will allow developers to start self-publishing on Xbox 360 as early as August.

The studio dropped the information in a newsletter that Polygon was privy to.

“Microsoft has just announced that indie developers (like FarSight) can now self-publish on Xbox Live Arcade instead of being required to find publishers for their games,” the newsletter stated. “This means we can bring The Pinball Arcade back to the 360 ourselves, and also opens the door to an Xbox One version of The Pinball Arcade in the future!”

FarSight further stated in the newsletter that the self-publishing program will open in August.

Microsoft said earlier this week it will announced further details on the initiative during gamescom.
