For the Xbox Series X | S, Microsoft will soon provide news about improvements. That comes from a new episode of the Xbox podcast. In any case, the next months and years can be exciting when it comes to the “enhancement” of the power console. Xbox project director Jason Ronald promised "a lot of really exciting things" for fans to look forward to. It will probably start on February 17th, according to a rumor. 

Microsoft is currently focusing on backward and forward compatibility. The new power consoles Xbox Series X and Series S have, at least in this regard, a lot in common with the Xbox One, which had already been similarly clear in this area. The user interface and the operating system also offer a common starting point, but at the same time the new Xbox consoles should also offer impressive downward compatibility features that noticeably improve older games.

Xbox Program Management Director Jason Ronald recently confirmed that Microsoft will be releasing further backward compatibility improvements for the Xbox Series X | S this year - it now appears that initial adjustments will be coming soon.

On the latest episode of the Xbox podcast, Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb told Hryb that there wasn't much he could say right now, but that there will be some news about improvements soon.

Jason Ronald trotted out the same horn, suggesting that Microsoft is working on a lot of "exciting things". These are to be made available in the coming months. Ronald said: "We have a lot of really exciting things in the pipeline for the months and years to come."

Backward compatibility improvements are a core issue on Xbox and are now seen by fans as a more natural service, but Microsoft is planning to add further system updates for the Xbox Series X | S that could expand compatibility services. Jason Ronald commented on the subject a while ago and said they were working on a number of improvements to the console's sharing features. At the end of January, Ronald already confirmed that the 60 FPS improvements for backward compatible titles that have been longing for by fans will come later this year.

With the new Xbox consoles, compatibility not only refers to the ability to play old games from the Xbox, Xbox 360 or Xbox One, but also to be able to enjoy them in a polished version, for example with increased frame rates or native HDR.
