Fans of the Xbox One console once again has a reason to rejoice, as it has been recently announced that fan favorites are coming to the beloved gaming platform through the Backward Compatibility program.

'Fan Favorites' for the Xbox One

Xbox head Phil Spencer had recently announced on Twitter that top fan requests are going to be added to the list of Xbox One Backward Compatible games. These games are said to be coming to the console within the month.

The tweet by Spencer was in reply to a fan, thanking the Xbox team for making the Xbox 360 game "RPG Blue Dragon" available to the Xbox One. Many fans have started to speculate what these upcoming fan request games might be.

Some have theorized that Xbox will be including "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2," "Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim," and "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" in the lineup. Additionally, some of the top-requested games ever since have been "Mass Effect 2," "Grand Theft Auto IV," "Batman: Arkham City," and a host of other installments under the "Call of Duty" franchise. The "Bioshock" trilogy could also be included.

Whatever the included games may be, fans could be assured that Microsoft's and Xbox's teams are doing their best to deliver the highest favored games to the Xbox One roster. The Xbox One Backward Compatibility game library now has almost 300 games in its lineup since the program was introduced in 2015. This is in response to the lack of native support for Xbox 360 games in the Xbox One when the gaming console was originally released in 2013.

Original Xbox Backward Compatibility

To take things further, Spencer had also previously hinted that games from the original Xbox may be brought to the Xbox One console. This would essentially expand the Xbox One Backward Compatibility game library exponentially, as there are tons of games playable through that platform.

For now, players can enjoy the current Xbox One games, along with the Backward Compatible ones, in the ever-growing library of this humongous gaming platform. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for more news and updates about Xbox One Backward Compatibility!
