Xbox One owners got a brief test of Red Dead Redemption as a backwards compatible title, but now it is officially on its way. Microsoft announced Tuesday that Rockstar Game's open-world western action adventure game is coming to Xbox One backwards compatibility this week. At the same time, it is on sale for less than $10.
Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb, Xbox LIVE's Director of Programming, and Rockstar Games both announced Red Dead Redemption will be added to Xbox One's backwards compatibility program later on Friday, July 8. This comes after the game was accidentally made available to download in February of this year.
