‘Xbox One Backwards Compatibility’ Update: No It’s Not a Mistake; Limbo is Latest Title to Arrive on the Feature

By Staff Reporter , Updated Nov 04, 2016 06:00 AM EDT

By now, fans of the Xbox One backwards compatibility update may feel wary about the games that arrive on the feature. After all, there have been two incidents of wrongly uploaded titles that left fans disappointed. Fortunately, there have been big titles in the feature that are legally downloadable; seeking to redeem Microsoft's past mistakes.

This week however, "Limbo" makes it to the Xbox One backwards compatibility list. Larry Hryb, also known as Major Nelson announced the title on twitter today saying "LIMBO is coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today." We say, the feature has been on series of doubtful titles after two Triple A games were mistakenly included on the list.

The "Red Dead Redemption" for example, surprisingly made it to the Xbox One backwards compatibility feature, only to be taken off after being playable for few days. Apparently, Microsoft made a mistake of including it saying, they have not acquired the license to put it up there.

Rockstar on the other remained quiet on the issue. In fact, no official statement was given whether the game will eventually become a backwards compatible game or not. "Red Dead Redemption" eventually arrived on the feature on July 2016. Unfortunately, a similar incident happened again and this time, "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" is spotted on the list. Unlike the RDR, the title was never playable and it was removed even before the rest of the gaming world discovers it.

Xbox Head Phil Spencer has since acknowledged the issue saying, it was a mistake that they included it as part of the Xbox One backwards compatibility feature. For some, it's disappointing, but for others, it's a sign of the next massive title that will arrive on the feature.
