It's finally happening!

Rockstar officially announces that Red Dead Redemption will be backwards compatible on Xbox One starting Friday, July 8th.

This comes after months of rumors and tension among fans.  Does this mean Red Dead online will be fixed as well?  Post your thoughts below!

Finaly! If the servers are fixed? I doubt it. But it should be possible. But if yes, then it's for both consoles.

I'm ready to for the sweet sweet sound of a headshot, and the silhouette of pixellated blood  on the wall behind them. #nostalgia

Is that a new graphic too?

This is great news! I think this is definitely the first steps to announcing a sequel.

When it worked a few months ago it had a new splash screen when first loading up. (Quickly, I might add.) I can't remember if it was this graphic, but it was pretty damn red! This is excellent news and now we see about those tired old servers and if they've been shown a little TLC.  :D

I was actually surprised to see that this was announced. I must've been 17/18 when I last touched this game. It'll be nice to play this game again, maybe even get back into Shootouts again or something if the servers are populated enough lol.

In regards to fixing the servers.. I doubt it. When they made Black Ops available for backwards compatibility, they were a ton of people modding. Not on the Xbox One of course, but on the 360. Too my knowledge, it wasn't formally addressed or fixed.

I wouldn't be shocked to see:
A. Same broken multiplayer
B. No multiplayer option
I hope I'm wrong...

From what I understand about BC games is that you put your disc in and it downloads a digital version which it runs through an emulator. I think the disc needs to stay in the drive to play though.

I'm really thinking about buying the digital version just so I don't have to swap discs all the time. #lazylife

Word of advice: if you want to continue your 360 save you'll need to fire up the 360 and switch your save to cloud, rather than HDD. Just load your save, go in and switch where it saves, then save. Voila, on Friday your levels, SP progress, titles and gold guns will be waiting for you. If you can't do this, well, get ready for this when you start multiplayer...

i would think, R* would say it wouldn't have multiplayer when they announced it.  but i'm guessing it will be A.  in other words if you guys want to play gang matches, better add some Mexicans onto your friend list to invite you into them. 8)

Anyone been able to get on yet? I just got home from work a short time ago and so its currently downloading. Probably won't get to play much tonight (Friday night Aussie time), but should have plenty of time over the weekend.

Really?  I played late last night in a public session and it was all messed up. Private sessions work fine though.
