Xbox One backwards compatibility January 2016 update

By Alan Ng - Jan 13, 2016

We are getting to the stage where many Xbox One owners are curious as to when the next Xbox One backwards compatibility update is for January 2016.

Microsoft said that they will be adding new titles to the service frequently, and with the last update happening on December 17 adding support for titles such as Halo Reach and Deus Human Revolution – another update for the end of January is expected.

With this in mind, we wanted to discuss the next update here with fans as we’re sure most of you have your favorite games which you want to see added next.


It seems as if Black Ops 1 for Xbox One backwards compatibility is top of the list, so hopefully that will be coming in the next update since it has already been confirmed as on the way from Activision.

You can see in the image above that other games such as Bioshock 1, 2 and 3 are confirmed as well along with Skate 3 – another great game. Microsoft hasn’t yet confirmed whether all of these titles will be in the next batch update, but news should definitely be coming soon.

In the meantime, you should read through the backwards compatibility FAQ from Major Nelson to make sure you are up to speed with how the rollout will take place.
