Xbox Backward Compatibility Program Adding More Games in November – Rumour

It's been a while since we saw Microsoft do anything with Xbox backward compatibility, but that could change very soon.

Of the three main platform holders, Microsoft is ahead of its competitors by miles when it comes to backward compatibility. Game preservation is something the company has spoken of on numerous occasions, and with various original Xbox and Xbox 360 games part of their backward compatibility program on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, they’ve been putting their money where their mouth is.

Of course, it’s been a while since any games from those older Xbox consoles were added to that catalog of backward compatible titles, and rightly so, people have been getting antsy over the lack of activity. That, however, could change soon. That’s according to Xbox Era co-founder Nick Baker, who recently took to Twitter to state that another batch of Xbox and Xbox 360 games will be made backward compatible, most likely in November.

Seeing as November would be Xbox’s 20th anniversary, it would make sense for Microsoft to do something along those lines. Of course, this is still unverified information, so take it with a grain of salt for now. We’ll keep you updated on any new info that comes our way though, so stay tuned.
