Xbox is a place where everyone can play. From game design to hardware design to development, Xbox has a diverse team that positively influences the creation and delivery of products and services that make gaming accessible and possible. We believe that our community’s pledge to inclusion is rooted in our roots. We are proud of where we came from, how our communities and families have contributed to our success, which we carry with us everywhere we go and with everything we do. Our culture unites us because of our shared sense of belonging. This includes the many languages and regions we come from, including Argentina, Chile, Brazil and Colombia. Our shared experiences are what unites us, and our unique contributions to the world strengthens them.
As avid consumers of U.S. media and pop culture as a child, it was gratifying to see Latino and Hispanic creators get more recognition and increased representation in media, television and games. Xbox Game Studios’ Forza Horizon is an example. It authentically recreates Mexico as it was in its natural beauty and celebrates the geography and culture of the country.
Hispanic/Latino members are becoming an increasingly important part of the tech sector. We are able to share our personal stories and build upon them. Future generations should be encouraged to enter the gaming industry to continue their meaningful creations and authentic storytelling.
We hope to highlight our diverse voices as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month here at Xbox. Here are some ways Xbox celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month and how you can get involved and make an impact.
