New Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Updates Coming This Week

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility updates were teased for last week by Xbox boss Phil Spencer that failed to arrive as promised. While Spencer told fans they would be hearing news about the popular Xbox One feature, apparently the announcements will come this week instead.

Spencer took to Twitter to relay the news, but didn’t give an exact date and time we could expect the updates on Xbox One Backwards Compatibility. “I apologize,” said Spencer. “Looks like BC news is delayed and will likely come next week. Again, sorry for the delay.”

Understandably, Xbox One owners are awaiting the backwards compatibility announcements anxiously. As any new game announcements instantly grow Xbox One owner game libraries, and there had been some speculation that Red Dead Redemption may be announced as a backwards compatible game.

Since announcing backwards compatibility at E3 2015, the list of games that are backwards compatible on Xbox One has been growing.

The feature is currently available only for Xbox One Preview Program participants. You can try to get into the Xbox One Preview Program here, but backwards compatibility will be arriving for all in November.
