Microsoft is getting ready to make a surprise announcement about the original Xbox backwards compatibility.
In a blog post, Microsoft said that it has a “big update” to share with players about backwards compatibility.
In a post on the Xbox Wire, Microsoft stated, “One of our most common requests is for Original Xbox Backward Compatibility news, and we’ll be starting off the show with a big update on just that.”
The announcement is scheduled to go out on the next episode of Inside Xbox – which was recently revived and changed format slightly.
The episode premiers on Tuesday, April 10, at 22:30 GMT.
Microsoft will provide a “full breakdown” of what players can expect from the Inside Xbox episode, but also said, “we reserve the right to keep a moment or two fully under wraps for a proper surprise.”
In other Xbox news, No Man’s Sky now has a release window of summer 2018, along with a big content update.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is due out on Xbox One on April 11th, and has a rather lavish Xbox One X trailer to show off its new look.
