Xbox Backward Compatibility Adds 70+ New Games, No More BC Updates Coming

Xbox backward compatibility

Microsoft just wrapped their Xbox 20th Anniversary Livestream, and fittingly given the show’s focus on the brand’s history, they announced over 70 additions to their Xbox backward compatibility program. Some key additions include the entire Max Payne and FEAR franchises, the Xbox Timesplitters games, an array of fan-favorite Star Wars titles, and of course, that timeless classic, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. Unfortunately, Microsoft has also confirmed this will be the last update to the backward compatibility program, due to “licensing, legal and technical constraints.”
