Are these the games that Ubisoft is considering for backwards compatibility on Xbox One?

2 min read


Backwards compatibility, a chance to play old games on your fancy new hardware that you dropped a stack of cash on in order to stay ahead of the curve is always fantastic. Especially if you happen to not be the kind of lump-head who gave away an entire box of said games away in some vague effort to move on.

That’s easily one of the top five boneheaded decisions I’ve made in life, just ahead of wiring cash to a Nigerian prince as a sign of good faith and actually walking into a glass door that one time when I left my spectacles in the car.

The Xbox One earned itself massive fan favour at E3 this year when it announced that it’d finally have backwards compatibility near the end of the year. But of course, there’s a catch. Backwards compatibility only works if the publisher allows their games to receive the treatment.

And seeing as how there’s still plenty of profit to be made in HD remasters of last-gen titles, that might make the process of playing your favourite console games a little bit more difficult.

Still, even if they aren’t looking to flash some cash, there are still plenty of great games from yesteryear that deserve to be emulated on the Xbox One. And Ubisoft might have plenty to offer. That’s the rumour according to a Reddit post, which spotted the following image on Ubisoft Mexico:

The art style above is very much in time with the first announcement of Xbox One backwards compatibility, with the Facebook page asking “Which Xbox 360 game from Ubisoft would you like to be compatible with the Xbox One?” So while the image above might not be a comfirmation of what’s to come, it very well is a list of the games that Ubisoft is considering for a re-release on Xbox One. Games such as:

  • Assassin’s Creed
  • Assassin’s Creed 2
  • Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations
  • Assassin;s Creed 3
  • Prince of Persia
  • Ray-Man Origins
  • Splinter Cell Double Agent
  • Splinter Cell Blacklist
  • Call of Juarez
  • Driver San Francisco
  • Tom Clancy’s Endwar
  • Rainbow Six Vegas
  • Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

That’s a pretty solid list right there. I wouldn’t mind being able to play the 2008 version of Prince of Persia again, as I still consider that one of the most beautiful games to ever come out of Ubisoft. How about you? Any games on that list that strikes your fancy?

    The question is… When will Ubi games become compatible with UPlay?

    *gasp* I think Geoff or Gavin figured out how to disable the jump scares… that “cat” or whatever it is doesn’t greet me when I mouse over it.

    Ugh, I’ll (u)pass thanks… I’ve either played all the games already, or I’ve just not been interested in them.
