Next Xbox One Backwards-Compatible Games Revealed

Assassin's Creed, Dark Void, and Grid 2 join the program.


The lineup of Xbox 360 games playable on Xbox One through backwards compatibility continues to grow.

Microsoft today added three new games to the program: Assassin's Creed (2007), Dark Void (2010), and Grid 2 (2013). With these added, the total number of titles in the lineup has risen to more than 140.

Before these three games, the latest added to the lineup were Alan Wake, Pac-Man, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, all of which came to the program last week.

Assassin's Creed is the second game in the franchise added to the lineup, as Assassin's Creed II is already in the program. You can see all of the backwards-compatible Xbox One games here.

The Xbox One backward compatibility program doesn't yet have the top four most-requested games on the Xbox Feedback site. These are, in order: Call of Duty: Black Ops II, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

It's possible these games will be added in the future, as Microsoft has said it is holding discussions with all major publishers and developers to possibly bring their games to the program. In February, Red Dead Redemption popped up on Xbox One and was playable until Microsoft removed it.

Ultimately, the decision about whether or not a game is added to the lineup comes down to individual publishers.
