Microsoft is discontinuing its Xbox and Xbox 360 backward compatibility program

The company posted a list of the last games that will be backward compatible on the Xbox One.

Xbox’s Backward Compatibility program was launched back during E3 in 2015. It enabled Xbox and Xbox 360 games to run on the current Xbox One consoles. After four years of supporting and adding more than 600 games to the list, the program is coming to an end.
