With the recent announcement of backwards compatibility for the Xbox One, voting has now opened for the next games to be brought to the current console, with Red Dead Redemption leading the pack.
When Microsoft announced back on Monday during E3 that a limited number of Xbox 360 games would be playable on the Xbox One, speculation was immediately rife as to the future games that would be permitted on the new hardware. While a limited number of games were announced at the time, including Mass Effect, voting has now opened for the next batch of games.
At the time of writing, Red Dead Redemption is decisively leading the pack, with slightly over 48,000 votes to its name. That’s a lot of support, considering voting was opened less than a week ago. The only other games to currently reach the 40,000 mark are Call of Duty: Black Ops II and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, each with little over 42,000 votes.
The next three games on the list are Halo: Reach, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Gears of war 3, respectively. This is hardly unsurprising, given the recent addition of Halo: ODST to the Xbox One and the announcement that the original Gears of War would be getting a full remaster for the latest console.
The amount of votes for the aforementioned games should only grow over the coming weeks, however Microsoft has still not pledged any date for the implementation of the games on the Xbox One.
