FWIW, last year about this time they took over a month off for the holidays, so we'll see if history repeats pretty soon here.

 

And there we have it.

I'm still impressed by how good they've done with this. The library they're going to have for the next Xbox is going to be insane. Just looking over my shelf, I've still got some hidden gems and silly choices I'd like to see go BC. My wish list for 2019 (putting in spoilers so nobody freaks out thinking these ARE being added to BC, lol)

Just a rumor for now, but there has been talk (nothing official, but the usual "a guy at the company told me" thing) that MK9 will be made BC in the weeks leading up to MK11's release.

 

 

That's it for the year. See you in a few weeks.

Why are they holding off some key titles? Plenty of games were MS can make extra revenue streams.

They need permission from the publishers. Some publishers, for whatever reason, don't want their games back compatible. Others may have issues with licensing (be it the property the game is based on, music in the game, or whatever).

Probably going to start to let this thread drift off, disregarding the fact that these forums are pretty dead, it's clear at this point they don't give a shit about back compatibility nearly as much as they used to. Rumors popped up a while back that a chunk of the BC team was moved on to other projects (like Xcloud) and it sure seems like that's the case.

Pretty disappointing. They've done a decent job of getting a lot of games on there, but there's still a ton to go. And don't even get me started on how god-awful the original Xbox support has been.

I'll still update the list occasionally but it's not going to be current all the time.

I know they aren't stopping completely, but they're definitely slowing down.
