Xbox One Won’t Get Any New Backwards Compatible Games Until 2018

Xbox One backwards compatible games

Xbox’s Major Nelson has announced there won’t be any more Xbox One backwards compatible games until 2018. The team is taking a break and won’t be releasing any new games until next year.

Microsoft released 136 Xbox 360 games, 7 Xbox One X-enhanced Xbox 360 titles, and 13 original Xbox games for the Xbox One this year.

Microsoft unveiled last week its final Xbox One backwards compatible games for 2017. The two new backwards compatibility games, both originally playable on the Xbox 360, are Earth Defense Force 2017 and the Dreamcast classic Sonic Adventure 2.

There are now more than 400 backwards compatible games available in the Xbox library. If you own the original discs for any of them, you simply drop it into your Xbox One disc tray and begin playing. For digital games you own, they’ll be waiting at the Ready to Download section of My Games and Apps. You can also purchase these old games from the game store of course.
