Microsoft has announced XNA Game Studio 2.0, designed to let developers easily create games for the PC and Xbox 360, and due for release later this year.

New to GS 2.0 is the ability to integrate with all versions of Visual Studio 2005, improved content handling (especially on the processing side), and better management of the 360 when you're working on that platform.

On the framework side, it now gives you access to Xbox Live, an easier to use GraphicsDevice object, MRT enhancements, a new XACT editor and more.

Check out the release page on the XNA Team Blog for more information, and discuss the announcement in our XNA Creators Club thread on the forums.
