Microsoft may announce the next wave of Xbox 360 games coming to Xbox One through backwards compatibility as early as this week. Xbox boss Phil Spencer offered the tease recently on Twitter.

Asked when fans will see the next batch of titles for backwards compatibility, Spencer replied, "Looks like you should hear some news this week."

The fan added, "Really wanna see Red Dead Redemption," but Spencer didn't reply to this.

With more than 87,000 votes, Rockstar's 2010 western action game sits near the top of Microsoft's most-requested backwards compatibility voting page, behind only Call of Duty: Black Ops II. There is no guarantee, however, that Red Dead Redemption will ever come to Xbox One through backwards compatibility. Ultimately, publishers--in this case Rockstar Games--get to make those decisions.

Backwards compatibility is currently available on Xbox One for Preview Program members only. It will roll out to everyone in November, at which time there will be "hundreds" of available games. In addition, all future Xbox 360 Games With Gold titles will be backwards-compatible.

In July 2015, Criterion Games said it would like to bring Burnout Paradise to Xbox One, while Ubisoft has also talked about bringing some of its back-catalog titles to the new platform. In addition, Electronic Arts recently said it's interested in bringing some Xbox 360 games to Xbox One through EA Access.

For now, you can check out this list of all the Xbox 360 games playable on Xbox One through backwards compatibility.
