Microsoft has held its 20th-anniversary event today, looking back at the success of the past two decades and revealing 70+ older Xbox titles to be added to the Xbox Backward Compatibility library. However, it looks like this is going to be the final update we’ll get, according to Microsoft.

According to the new Xbox Wire blog post released today, in which Peggy Lo, compatibility program lead at Xbox, confirmed that Xbox has reached its limit to add new games to the BC library.

“While we continue to stay focused on preserving and enhancing the art form of games, we have reached the limit of our ability to bring new games to the catalog from the past due to licensing, legal and technical constraints,” Peggy Lo said.

“This latest and final addition of 70+ titles to the backwards compatibility program was only possible through the passion and feedback from the community.

“[Xbox fans’] constant requests for specific titles and enhancements encouraged the backwards compatibility team to partner with the original creators to preserve thousands of games from over four generations of Xbox, explains Peggy Lo.

That being said, Microsoft did add over 70 titles to the Back Combilibity catalog today, including 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Burning Earth, and Conan. You can find the complete list below.
