Xbox One backwards compatibility January 2016 update

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.

Are you expecting new backwards compatibility games for Xbox One soon? What is top of your list aside from Black Ops 1?

None of these other suggested titles matter at all. The only game that should have priority is 100% skate 3

I’m a sports fan. I know most sports games are not being added, mainly due to new games released every year, but any chance we can see a few? Some games tanked like head coach but still had/have believe it or not because of the strategy. Even an old 2k baseball game would be great, (except last 2 years of it) because the mlb game being pushed now is horrible and I wouldn’t play it if it was free. Maybe a wrestling game. Does anyone have any information?

Skate 3 was suppose to be BC last month and MS has said nothing. I really want to play that again. Would also like Mass Effect 2 and 3 and before people say they aren’t yet because they are working to get multi disc games working, how did they get Fallout 3 GOTY edition to work flawlessly when that’s multi disc? Would also love to play Dragon Age Origins and Skyrim again. When new bigger games start coming out I won’t care as much but right now I do.

It should be about the games
