No More New Games In Xbox One Backward Compatibility Program In 2017 [Here's Why]

Xbox One backward compatibility program has been halted until 2018. Yes, you read it correctly - but this hault is not related to some bad news, Team Xbox has decided to give Xbox One Backward Compatibility Program Team a break for the Holiday Season. This means, there won't be any new games added to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility until 2018.

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Program

The announcement came from Microsoft's Major Nelson via Twitter. He stated that the Xbox One backward compatibility team has added a total of 156 games to the program: 136 Xbox 360, 13 Original Xbox and 7 Enhanced Xbox 360 games in the year 2017, and so they rightly deserved the break.

"After releasing 136 Xbox 360, 13 Original Xbox & 7 enhanced Xbox 360 titles in 2017, the Xbox One Backward Compatibility team is taking some time off for the holidays. Releases resume after New Year. Thank you for all of your support this year" read the tweet from Major Nelson.
