Microsoft have announced the current end of the backward compatibility program. Due to the upcoming console, currently titled Project Scarlett, the team are focusing primarily on making sure the current back catalogue of games works smoothly on the new hardware. However, it's not all sad news, as a bunch of new titles make their way to the backward compatibility program. Many of them are long requested classics from the original Xbox and 360 era. Many of them are available right now, including Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, Far Cry Classic, and many more. There's also Enslaved : Odyssey to the west, a long requested title. It's considered a hidden-gem by many, including myself.
The program might be over for now, but at least they went out with a bang. Check out the full list below.
