Xbox Boss Teases Blue Dragon Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

Also, Phil Spencer says he has a "never say never" attitude about making Blue Dragon 2.


After confirming in August that Blue Dragon is coming to Xbox One through backwards compatibility, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has now talked about it again.

Asked by someone on Twitter if there was any hope for Blue Dragon 2, Spencer said he's more focused right now on getting the Xbox 360 game playable on Xbox One.

"Right now more focused on getting BD1 to XB1 owners," he said. "I'd never say never, but not working on BD2 now."

In August, Spencer revealed that Blue Dragon was coming to the Xbox One backwards compatibility program is something of a funny fashion. Asked straight up if the game was coming to Xbox One, Spencer said, "I'm not allowed to say but yes."

Blue Dragon, which was developed by Hironobu Sakaguchi's Mistwalker (read our review here), shipped on Xbox 360 across three discs. In May, Microsoft introduced support for multi-disc backwards compatibility titles, beginning with Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut.

There are now more than 250 Xbox 360 games playable on Xbox One through backwards compatibility. You can see a list of all of them right here.
