Some games remain popular with players even after decades have passed. Unfortunately, more and more of such classic titles are disappearing from digital platforms because they are becoming too outdated. Microsoft is aware of this issue and is working on a solution to ensure users can access iconic titles for many years to come.

Such information was provided by the portal Windows Central, which obtained the message that the new Xbox brand CEO, Sarah Bond, sent to her colleagues. The content refers to a special team created by the Redmond giant to handle the preservation and safeguarding of games. This means that we shouldn't encounter any issues running even older titles on modern equipment for many years to come.

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 -- reads a part of the message.

In the announcement, Bond also mentioned that the next Xbox console will provide the largest technological leap between generations in the history of the brand. Microsoft will reveal more information on this and many other topics during the Xbox Games Showcase, which is supposed to take place on June 9.

During the event, the next installment of the Call of Duty series is likely to be presented. Gulf War - this is the subtitle of the upcoming shooter - is a game that, according to previous reports, will take us to the times of the First Persian Gulf War and will feature an open-world campaign prepared by Raven Software studio. Specialists from the Treyarch Games team are reportedly working on the multiplayer and zombie modes (via Insider Gaming).
