PS5 and Xbox Series X backwards compatibility will be much better than we thought, as Ubisoft has confirmed the next-gen consoles will be able to run a lot of the best PS4 and Xbox One games

In a recent earnings call (via GamesRadar), Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated that both Microsoft and Sony’s upcoming consoles “will be running almost all the back catalog of the previous consoles.”

“It will be something new in the industry,”Guillemot said. “[Backwards compatibility] will help the old generations to continue to be big consoles on the market for years to come.”
