Microsoft’s next-gen Project Scarlett will run Xbox One games

The backwards compatibility team is changing its focus

Microsoft has confirmed it’s starting to wind down Xbox and Xbox 360 backward compatibility support for the Xbox One.

The tech giant says that the team behind its backwards compatibility platform is now focusing on bringing Xbox One game support to its next-generation Project Scarlett console.

“We have now shifted our focus to help make the games you love playing on Xbox One compatible with future Xbox hardware,” said Jason Ronald, partner director of the Xbox platform, during a recent E3 livestream. “After this week, we have no plans to add additional Original Xbox or Xbox 360 titles to the catalogue on Xbox One.”

Microsoft says it plans to get every Xbox One game running on Scarlett, as well as other titles from the original Xbox and Xbox 360.
