This month's Xbox One backwards compatible games are coming soon, honest

We know that new backwards compatible 360 games for Xbox One are coming at a monthly rate right now, but we've heard nothing of January's batch so far.

December's batch arrived on the same day it was announced, so we can probably expect the list and some new games to come as a package deal. Will this be the month that number one most requested game, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 stretches a kevlar-coated hand across the generations?

If you're looking for something old to play right now, make sure to check out our Backwards Compatible Game of the Week, Beyond Good and Evil HD.
