Rockstar Games has confirmed that Red Dead Redemption will be joining the Xbox One backwards compatibility list from Friday July 8th. This isn’t too much of a surprise announcement considering there have been various leaks related to this news over the last few months, but now we have confirmation at last. Rockstar has confirmed that it will be playable no matter which Xbox 360 copy you own.
Starting on Friday, every Red Dead Redemption Xbox 360 owner will be able to play the game directly on their Xbox One, regardless of which version of the game they own (Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare and Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition). And for those who have yet to experience it, the game will be available to purchase on Friday from the Games Store on Xbox One.
Now all we need is an announcement of a new Red Dead.
