Microsoft’s GM of games marketing Aaron Greenberg via Twitter stated the team at Xbox believes current-generation and legacy games should play and take advantage of the innovations in the next generation of consoles.
"Xbox believes in generations," said Greenberg. "Generations of games that play on latest [hardware] taking advantage of next-gen innovation offering more choice, value & variety than any console launch ever.
"All our Studios titles launch into Game Pass & you get those next-gen game upgrades for free."
This statement follows the blog post from team Xbox that their next generation console, the Xbox Series X, will launch with thousands of backwards compatible games that will also be taking advantage of the improved hardware.
The improvements includes games that don't support HDR getting native HDR support, improved loading times due to the SSD, and select titles getting a boost on frames per second from 30 fps to 60 fps or 60 fps to 120 fps.
Head of Xbox Phil Spencer recently said he feels good about their supply chain when it comes to producing the console and he is committed to a worldwide launch of the Xbox Series X in Holiday 2020. The pre-order page for the Xbox Series X recently went live, however, you cannot pre-order it yet. The price and release date were also not listed.
