According to Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi, Microsoft's current certification process is not very friendly to free-to-play games.

Here's Kislyi speaking with Polygon about the struggles the studio faced in bringing World of Tanks to Xbox Live:

One of the biggest challenges with Microsoft was the frequency of updates because the QA process and certification process takes an extremely long time. Totally unacceptable for a meaningful free-to-play. We are working with them to do quicker updates.

Kislyi noted that Wargaming is trying to help Microsoft streamline the certification process, but that there is quite a bit of work on the tech and admin sides that needs to be done.

As for whether any of this will result in meaningful changes for developers looking to launch on Microsoft's current or future console, Kislyi noted, "We will see."
