It seems that Microsoft is currently getting ready to make a new announcement regarding the Xbox One‘s backward compatibility support for games released on the Original Xbox. As of right now, the Xbox One supports only 13 titles from the Original Xbox (as opposed to over 450 titles from the Xbox 360.)

The company promises that a “big update” on this topic will be made public during the next episode of Inside Xbox, which is set to go live next Tuesday, April 10, at 3:30 pm PT / 6:30 pm ET.

In a post on Xbox Wire, Microsoft explained that “one of our most common requests is for Original Xbox Backward Compatibility news, and we’ll be starting off the show with a big update on just that.”┬áThe company also said that a “full breakdown” will be provided the Monday before the new episode premieres.

In addition, they also gave a small teaser, stating that “we reserve the right to keep a moment or two full under wraps for a proper surprise.” What that surprise is will likely pique the interest of many Xbox One owners. However, at this time, whether or not this mystery will directly relate to the backward compatibility is unclear.
