These seven games could become backward compatible on Xbox in November


This is not an ordinary year for the Xbox brand, and next month Microsoft will celebrate 20 years of existence of its green child. Apparently, at least that’s what the rumors sing, we’ll have more retro-compatible games announced soon… but which ones would they be? Well, Trueachievements has discovered seven possible titles that might make the list.

A backward compatible game on Xbox is one that, even though it is originally from a previous generation, can play on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Said site discovered by scouring the Microsoft Store that seven original Xbox titles were added to the revamped Xbox 360 store in September, and all have a strange release date of November 30th.

Well, it could be conscience or some bug, but it could also be an announcement or an event commemorating 20 years of Xbox. The seven new supposedly backward compatible games are:

  • Dead or Alive 3 (which would perfectly match Xbox’s 20th anniversary celebrations if added to the program)
  • Dead or Alive Ultimate
  • Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers
  • Gladius
  • Gunvalkyrie
  • Advent Rising
  • And strangely, Chicken Little (inspired license)

Now, this could simply be Microsoft testing something, so no one should jump to conclusions. Microsoft ended the Xbox backwards compatibility program in June 2019 so the Xbox team could work to ensure that Xbox One games were compatible with the Xbox Series X|S.
