Microsoft’s director of product planning Albert Panello has clarified that not every Xbox One achievement unlocked will be recorded by the console.
Previous reports suggested that every single achievement would be recorded, however Panello has explained that it is actually a feature that developers can choose to enable, if they wish to. “It won’t be automatic for every Achievement,” he wrote on NeoGAF.
“It’s a feature that Developers can unlock for achievements, OR, for instance, have hidden in the game for doing something cool or discovering something hidden. Basically we allow developers access to GameDVR and they can put conditions on an automatic recording.
“But not every Achievement will automatically be recorded.”
