7 November 2020

From next week, if people managed to get a pre-order, there will be many unboxings of the brand-new Xboxes and Playstations, and now Rockstar has revealed which of their games on PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S will be backwards compatible.

The American gaming company has announced that some of its most successful titles will be backwards compatible, such as Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2.

This means that owners of the PS5 and Xbox Series X that have the current-gen physical discs of these games will be able to insert them into the new consoles. Also, those who own digital versions of the titles will be able to download them on their next-gen console.

Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2 players will also be able to convert their game saves and other data to the next-gen platforms.
