The F.E.A.R. series and Condemned 2: Bloodshot contain some of the most riveting horror games ever made. The F.E.A.R. series set a new standard for first-person shooters which provided jump scares around every corner. Condemned 2 is similar because it's a psychological thriller which focuses on melee combat.
Ever since Microsoft announced the Xbox Backward Compatibility program, many gamers have requested numerous titles, but the F.E.A.R. and Condemned franchises are always at the top. Developer Monolith Productions receives daily requests to make the games backward compatible; today it responded. If you want to see F.E.A.R. games or Condemned 2 on Xbox One, you'll have to request it on Xbox Ideas.
We get a lot of requests for XB1 backwards compatability of the F.E.A.R. series and Condemned 2. We'd love to, but first it's a conversation between our pub and Xbox. If you suggest it at the link below, though, *maybe* together we can get things moving. https://t.co/FRFUi5rMsA pic.twitter.com/BFiVKqs5dg— Monolith Productions (@MonolithDev) March 21, 2019

It's unclear if Microsoft is having conversations with Sega and Warner Bros. at the moment, but considering that they're some of the most popular titles from the Xbox 360 era, it's bound to happen one day. Users got Activision and Microsoft talking, and we saw numerous entries in the Call of Duty franchise make an appearance. Hopefully, we can do the same for F.E.A.R. and Condemned 2.
