It’s that time of the month when we try to guess what will be in the next batch of Xbox Games with Gold program. This subscription service has always been filled with fun titles that are either indie or mainstream. This time, we will be looking at Xbox 360 games that could be backwards compatible with the Xbox One or are in the process of the conversion.
During an interview with Wired, Phil Spencer previously revealed that he is a fan of two underrated Xbox 360 RPGs: Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey. Both titles are great and it seems like the two games could be coming to the Xbox One as backwards compatible titles soon, though Spencer did not give a possible date or timeline for the RPGs. He even stated this on Twitter, so it’s clear that some progress is being made.
Fans are also hoping that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be part of the Xbox Games with Gold service soon as Activision?s game has been leaked a number of times already. It might not have been as good as the first game, but it was a fan favorite, thanks to a thrilling story campaign and excellent multiplayer. It would also be a nice touch on the part of Activision, since the first Modern Warfare game is getting a remaster for those who pre-order Infinite Warfare.
There are also a couple of games that are still in progress and might become backwards compatible soon. Skate 3 is one of them. Since there might not be a Skate 4 anytime soon, letting players play the last entry in the series on the Xbox One is the next best thing. It’s certainly better than playing the poorly received Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, which was an immense disappointment to many a skating fan.
Finally, there’s Bioshock: Infinite. The acclaimed third entry in the series has been in progress as a backwards-compatible title for the longest time and would be a fantastic entry in the Xbox Games with Gold service. None of the Bioshock games have been made backwards compatible, but the third one should be, since it?s a standalone title, though some fans might opt to get the upcoming Bioshock collection.
