Burnout Revenge Will Not Be Made Available on Xbox One Via Backwards Compatibility, Criterion Says

‘There are no plans for that.’

Criterion has been among the most enthusiastic supporters of Microsoft’s backwards compatibility initiative for the Xbox One- they pledged that Burnout Paradise, their last Burnout game, would be made available for Xbox One via its backwards compatibility functionality, and they made good on their word. However, for a lot of fans of the franchise, Paradise is actually something of a black mark on the Burnout series- the open world structure in the game, many felt, detracted from what Burnout was really good at. Burnout 3: Takedown, and its immediate sequel Burnout Revenge were felt to be far superior, and the peak of the franchise.

Of these games, Burnout Revenge was actually released on the Xbox 360- so fans were probably not wrong in hoping for the game to eventually be released for the Xbox One via backwards compatibility, right? Well… according to Criterion, there are no plans to make the title compatible with the Xbox One any time soon. Which is a shame because I would play Revenge over Paradise any day (and Takedown over both).

Oh well.

      I have generated 74,000 dollars so far this year working online and I am a full time student. I am attached with an online business entity that I heard about and I have earned such great cash. It is really user friendly and I feel myself lucky to have that option …. qzx
