Complete List of All Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Games [Updated Accordingly]

Backwards Compatibility

One thing that sets Xbox One apart from its competition is that they offer backwards compatibility to bridge the gap between last generation and the current one. PlayStation offers something similar but regardless of already owning the title, Sony still requests payment. With the Xbox, if you already own the disc – you are good to go. This made a lot of gamers happy and continues to do so as the list grows with every month.

Phil Spencer remarked previously on why it isn’t at 100% title release yet due to a number of factors, most importantly being publisher and developer permission. There is a lot more to the process than simply stick the disc in and WOOP, there it is. There are legal steps and hardware steps that first must take place. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t listening. Microsoft is in talks with ALL major publishers and developers in hopes to bringing more titles within this program, especially those high demand ones like Mass Effect 2 and 3 (which as over Nov. 7th has been added) and the record breaking Call of Duty: Black Ops II (added as of April, 2017).

Not sure which titles have made the cut thus far? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Below is the list of every title to date that is currently backwards capable for the Xbox One. Enjoy!
