MS Store Filter Could be Showing Upcoming Xbox Backwards Compatible Games
It would seem that a filter setting on the Microsoft Store page could very well be showing some upcoming Xbox Backwards Compatible games. While it might be a sorting error, the mix of actual backwards compatible Xbox 360 games share the same general information as ones that could possibly be coming. The mentioned page is where you filter games based on platform for when you'd like to purchase a digital code. The codes are then used on the console or site and grant the license to the game though only a select amount of games are available for purchase in this manner. The currently already available Xbox BC games in this filter include; Injustice: Gods Among Us, Kingdom for Keflings (2 games), BattleBlock Theater, Grand Theft Auto IV and Mirror's Edge to name a few as there are many more. This sets up some reason for why the following games could very well be upcoming on Xbox Backwards Compatibility.
Some of the mentioned future Xbox Backwards Compatible titles include; Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Mortal Kombat (2011), Batman: Arhkam Origins, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim + DLC, Orcs Must Die!, Tomb Raider, Hitman: Blood Money, Saints Row: The Third and some Dead Island games. There were also a couple more titles as well with some being AAA and others smaller in scale though I selected some of the popular ones. Sorry for those wanting to see Call of Duty, as none of the games are listed there at all. These all seem like games that would make sense on the program with the companies being receptive with it in the past while also having great relationships with Xbox. It also makes sense in that these games are directly mixed with many other titles already available via Xbox BC along with some recent ones. This doesn't 100% confirm things, but I'd say there's a good chance for the games to be future releases.
