Is Xbox Series X backward compatible?
Will Xbox Series X be backward compatible?
At E3 2019, Xbox shared that the backward compatibility program was shifting and the team was focusing on making sure that every game you're currently playing on your Xbox One will be playable on Xbox Series X (then referred to as Project Scarlett).
Further confirmation came from Phil Spencer's post on the official Xbox website announcing Xbox Series X. In it, Phil Spencer stated that Xbox Series X will support "thousands of your favorite games across four generations of gaming," so you don't need to worry about a game on your Xbox One not being compatible. Jason Ronald, Director of Product Management at Xbox, has confirmed that Xbox One discs will be backward compatible.
What about my controllers?
All of your Xbox controllers and headsets will also be compatible with Xbox Series X, so if you've invested a lot of money into different controllers like the Elite Series 2, don't worry, you'll still be able to use on the next console. Your game saves will also carry forward, so you can stop playing a game on your current console and pick up right where you left off on Xbox Series X.
