We know that we will see a greater emphasis on cross platform play between PC and Xbox One gamers over the next few years. If PC gamers will be able to choose between mouse and keyboard or an Xbox One controller then console gamers should have the same options, right?
Phil Spencer seems to think so. In a recent Twitter exchange he confirmed that Microsoft will still enable mouse and keyboard support on Xbox One.
@jeffkingston Yes, we will get this done.

Future games will likely include a feature that lets players choose whether they want to participate in multiplayer matches with mixed controller setups. It will be interesting to see how mouse and keyboards will be integrated into older multiplayer games.
