Backwards Compatability.

OP Stanlyhalo

Hey if 343i is reading this, I would like to request to have the original halo and halo 2 for Xbox become backwards compatible with the Xbox one, peoplebpeople told to contact the developers of the game to make it backwards compatible, but I couldn't find the official 343i email.

Microsoft announced some time ago that no more games will be added to the backwards compatible catalogue.
Well that just sucks.

Do you know why this is? I understand that it could be complicated to get these games to work, but the original Xbox's backward-compatible catalog has always felt a bit bare-bones.

They said it was in order to focus on the Xbox Series X. I suspect licensing had a part in it as well. Maybe the backwards compatible catalogue will be expanded after the release of the Xbox Series X.
Hopefully, I really love the original feel of Halo: CE with the UI and since MCC messed some things up with both the original and Anniversary (mainly Gearbox messed these things up).
They should make Halo 2 Anniversary its own game, instead of something exclusive to MCC.
