While the official Xbox website lists over 600 Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One games will be compatible with Xbox Series X; the top of the page notes “current list of titles with more to come. Games are subject to change.” You can find the full list here.

Xbox director of program management Jason Ronald has stated the full extent that list will grow to. “After 500K+ hours of testing,” Ronald tweeted, “we’re are excited to share that all Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One games playable on Xbox One today, except for the handful that require Kinect, will be available – and look and play better – on Xbox Series X|S at launch.”

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launches on November 10th.

Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) had previously stated that “the overwhelming majority of the 4,000+ PS4 titles will be playable” on the upcoming PlayStation 5. You can find the full details on backwards compatibility and how the next-gen upgrade process for games works here.
