Xbox Brings Back Backward Compatibility Program for Its 20th Anniversary

Adding 76 new games.

For its 20th anniversary, Mircrosoft Xbox brings back its backward compatibility program, which was placed on hold two years ago.

“This latest and final addition of 70+ titles to the backwards compatibility program was only possible through the passion and feedback from the community,” stated Peggy Lo, compatibility program lead at Xbox, as reported by The Verge. “[Xbox fans’] constant requests for specific titles and enhancements encouraged the backwards compatibility team to partner with the original creators to preserve thousands of games from over four generations of Xbox.”

This may come as a surprise to Xbox users considering Microsoft perviously stated it wasn’t planning on adding neither original Xbox or Xbox 350 titles to its catalog. However, this will be the last time new backward games will be added. “While we continue to stay focused on preserving and enhancing the art form of games, we have reached the limit of our ability to bring new games to the catalog from the past due to licensing, legal and technical constraints,” Lo elaborated. Additionally, Xbox is adding FPS Boost to 33 games on xCloud.

Scroll down to see the full list of the new 76 Xbox backward compatible games now available.
