Next-Gen Games Will Be Playable On Xbox One

Microsoft doesn’t want to completely leave the 2013-released Xbox One behind.


The Redmond-based company’s E3 presentation did not mention the Xbox One whatsoever. Microsoft Flight Simulator has been confirmed for Xbox Series (while the X1 got the shaft); Starfield from Bethesda Game Studios and Redfall from Arkane Austin respectively are also heading to the new console… but Microsoft wanted to think of the players who own their console from the previous generation.

„You’ll see many games this holiday, including Forza Horizon 5, which will boast DirectX Raytracing on both Xbox Series X and S, and Battlefield 2042, which will run at 60fps while supporting 128 players on Series X|S. Some games launching next year from our first-party studios and partners, such as Starfield, Redfall, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 require the speed, performance, and technology of Series X|S. We’re excited to see developers realize their visions in ways that only next-gen hardware will allow them to do.

For the millions of people who play on Xbox One consoles today, we are looking forward to sharing more about how we will bring many of these next-gen games, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, to your console through Xbox Cloud Gaming, just like we do with mobile devices, tablets, and browsers,” Microsoft wrote in a blog post on Xbox Wire.

During E3, they also mentioned that there will be a built-in Xbox app for smart TVs, as well as a streaming stick (which is something we have heard before!), showing that Microsoft is looking towards cloud gaming, making it slowly a more and more important aspect of their strategy.

It could be good, but two factors are required: we need a good Internet connection (preferably with no data caps!), plus they need to eliminate input lag as much as possible, as it can significantly ruin the experience.
