It?s finally confirmed! ?Red Dead Redemption? is coming to the Xbox One backwards compatibility feature this Friday, July 8, according to the latest tweet of game developer Rockstar. The news is a long time coming, not only for fans of Xbox One, but also for the other gaming platforms who curiously followed the development of the game. In a previous report by TheBitBag, Microsoft said that one of the things that hindered the arrival of Red Dead Redemption on the Xbox one backwards compatibility feature is licensing issues. Now, it looks like that part of the problem has been solved.
?Red Dead Redemption? is not new to the Xbox One backwards compatibility feature. In fact, besides the rumor that it is one of the expected games to arrive in the feature, the game actually once made it to the Xbox One Store, only to be pulled out after a very short stint. According to Microsoft, at the time, they were testing games on the backwards compatibility system that admittedly allowed developers to mistakenly launch games that aren?t ready for the feature.
Another reason why it took several months for the game to arrive on the Xbox One backwards compatibility feature is because Rockstar primarily wanted it to be a franchise title. By doing so, they needed more time to find a good storyline for game, to avoid the mistake of putting it to waste, especially now that it has gained a good number of followers.
The arrival of ?Red Dead Redemption? on the Xbox One backwards compatibility list apparently contradicts previous reports that it has a bleak future in Microsoft?s trademark program. Also, TheBitBag previously made a bold prediction that sometime in July, the game will arrive in the feature; now is the day to rejoice and reminisce reading the time we all wanted Red Dead Redemption on the Xbox One backwards compatibility feature.
