Microsoft has reportedly established a new team dedicated to future-proofing and preserving the Xbox game library.

In a new "exclusive" from Windows Central's Jez Corden, it's revealed how the recently appointed Xbox president Sarah Bond sent out emails to employees about Microsoft setting up this new specialist team which will build on the company's "strong history of delivering backwards compatibility":

"We have formed a new team dedicated to game preservation, important to all of us at Xbox and the industry itself...We are building on our strong history of delivering backwards compatibility to our players, and we remain committed to bringing forward the amazing library of Xbox games for future generations of players to enjoy."

According to the same story, Microsoft "may have more to share publicly" around this year's Xbox Showcase, which is expected to take place on June 9th, 2024.

In a new rumour yesterday, it was suggested Xbox could also be "gearing up for an announcement on its back catalog of games following the acquisition of Activision Blizzard".
