With the launch date of the Xbox One X fast approaching, it is apparent that the release of #Xbox One backwards compatibility titles has slowed down. Nevertheless, Microsoft remains committed to providing new games for the Xbox One, and, as a result, the company promised four new titles, which will likely come out in September. According to the Daily Star, 343 Industries have committed to developing four "Halo" titles. A recent blogpost from 343 Industries has revealed that the game developer has been investing more time on the selected Halo titles.

“We know everyone is very eager to get their hands on the Xbox One back-compat release of Halo: CE Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3 ODST, and Halo 4.

We are eager to get them into your hands!”, the company said in its blogpost.

What's coming?

The four new titles include "Halo 3," "Halo 3: ODST," "Halo 4," and "Halo: Combat Evolved." Unfortunately, 343 Industries have not given the exact release date for the titles but, by looking through the timeline when they first promised the titles, they are likely to come not later than the end of September.

The Xbox One backwards compatibility feature allows Xbox 360 games to be integrated into the Xbox One console. According to Microsoft, one of their biggest challenges is the acquisition of licensing for the game. Apparently, not all game developers want their titles on the Xbox One console. Besides the grueling time they have to spend to update the game, it also needs a massive budget to make these titles fit for the Xbox One console.

Previous BC feature titles

Meanwhile, some of the biggest titles on the feature include "The Bioshock Trilogy," "The Mass Effect Trilogy," "#Red Dead Redemption," and "The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion." This year, on the other hand, mark the arrival of one of the most requested games on the backwards compatible feature; "Call of Duty: #Black Ops 2." Fans continue to vote for games they want to see next on BC feature and according to the Express UK, the survey still holds the title "Skyrim" and "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare."

With all these new titles coming to the Xbox One backwards compatibility feature, it's also important to be very careful on the titles you see. The feature is not new to mistaken titles being put up on the list. Previously, the "Red Dead Redemption" and "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" were mistakenly added only to be pulled down from the list after fans attempted to download the games.
