Xbox Series X Games Not Exclusive to Next Generation
In an interview with MCVUK, Matt Booty confirmed speculations that while the upcoming Xbox Series X with be more powerful, the new games will be able to be played on current gen consoles. Moving forward, Microsoft games will be both forwards and backwards compatible where older games and new games can travel between console series.
According to Booty, the idea is to make sure buyers feel investing in the next generation is worthwhile while not isolating others. At the time of launch, any new content will be accessible to those still playing on their original Xbox One, Xbox One S and Xbox One X. With that said, Booty ensures games like Halo Infinite will still take advantage of enhancements featured in the new system.
