Halo Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Still Happening

Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: CE Anniversary are coming to Xbox One through backwards compatibility. We still don’t know when they’ll be added to the catalog, but fans can rest assured that Microsoft is still working on it. In the latest Halo weekly update, developer 343 gave an update on how it’s coming along, starting off with, “Good news: back-compat is still a thing!”

The backwards compatibility team continues its efforts, “churning away on getting the titles prepared for public consumption on Xbox One hardware,” 343 said. People internally at Microsoft have been play-testing the games in the past week.

However, there is still no word on when the games will actually be available.

Not only are all of those Halo games coming to Xbox One via backwards compatibility, but all the map packs are, too. The only issue is that the Noble Map Pack for Halo: Reach is not free as it should be. 343 is working with the Xbox Store team to fix this.

The Halo games are all already playable on Xbox One via The Master Chief Collection, which includes Halo: CE Anniversary, a Halo 2 remaster, Halo 3, and Halo 4 all running at 60 frames per second. Halo 3: ODST was also released into the package.

In other Halo news, 343 is working on a 4K update for Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One X. Microsoft’s super-powered console launches in November.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
