Xbox celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

In Xbox, game development, hardware design, expression, and team diversity have a positive impact on how we create and deliver products that enable and make games accessible to everyone. As a community, we believe that our commitment to inclusiveness has to do with our roots. Where we came from and how our families and communities contributed to our growth are reflected in our work, wherever we go and what we do. But it brings that lasting commitment. Connecting our culture is our sense of belonging across the different regions and languages ​​in which we are all born, including Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Colombia and Argentina. We are united in what we share and are strengthened by how our unique contributions can affect the world around us.

Growing up as an enthusiastic consumer of American pop culture, media and content, Hispanic and Latin creators are recognized in their work and are increasingly represented in media, movies, television and, of course, games. It’s very rewarding to see.One example is the upcoming plans for Xbox Game Studios Forza Horizon 5Realistically create a vibrant and diverse Mexico that celebrates the region’s culture, beauty and geography.

Members of the Hispanic and Latin American communities are becoming a stronger part of the technology industry, making it increasingly possible for us to talk about ourselves personally through our work. We want to encourage future generations to pursue their careers in the gaming industry and continue this journey of meaningful creativity and genuine storytelling.

As we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month on Xbox, we hope to showcase our unique voice and endless pursuit of inclusion, expression and community. Below are some of the ways Xbox is celebrating and how to engage and influence.
